Bill in USA Congress to ready USA for a nuclear attack emergency

Bipartisan bill allows Washington to prepare for nuclear attack BY KIRO RADIO STAFF, Staff report   | May 10, 2017 As North Korea threatens to nuke the United States, a new bill in the Legislature would allow Washington state to prepare for it.

Current state law requires an “all-hazard emergency plan for the natural, technological, or human-caused hazards which could affect” citizens. But a law passed in 1984 says that any such plan “may not include preparation for emergency evacuation or relocation of residents in anticipation of nuclear attack.”

 A bill introduced by senators David Frockt, a Democrat, and Mark Miloscia, a Republican, would get rid of that language.

They say recent tensions between the U.S. and North Korea makes the idea timely.
