Congressman Sestak supports passage of H.R. 2892, the Homeland Security Appropriations Act and supports local homeland defense projects in district

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2010 today after the House and Senate reconciled differences in their versions of the bills. Included in the bill was $500,000 for Upper Darby Township Police Department’s 2009 Public Safety Building Restoration Project, an appropriation submitted by Congressman Joe Sestak (PA-07) to improve emergency response and coordination in the township.


REAL ID: $60 million, $40 million below 2009, to help states comply with REAL ID, which requires state driver’s licenses to meet new standards in order to be used for federal identification purposes. Of this total, $50 million is for the driver’s license security grant program, the same as 2009, and $10 million is for REAL ID hub development.
