Local News Stories

Congressman Troy Balderson’s bill to Protect Nonprofit Organizations against Terrorists passed the House this week. It would ensure necessary federal support to protect the safety of nonprofits as risk of terrorism, including synagogues, mosques, churches, and other place of worship. Balderson says “people should feel comforted and uplifted in their houses of worship, not in fear of their lives.” The bill would authorize a grant to assist with costs related to acquiring and installing security equipment, hiring security personnel and security training for key personnel to prevent or protect against attacks. The legislation now moves to the Senate.
