Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Act

 

The U.S. House of Representatives has unanimously passed the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Act of 2018 (H.R. 7213).  The legislation permanently establishes the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) Office within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
 
The CWMD Office was developed to protect the public against biological and chemical threats and expand upon DHS’s existing authorities to protect against radiological and nuclear dangers.
