From the Purpose and Summary: "The purpose of S. 3405, the Protecting and Securing Chemical Facilities from Terrorist Attacks Act of 2018, is to reauthorize and improve the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program at the Department of Homeland Security ('DHS' or the 'Department') for a period of five years. The legislation makes several important reforms to improve the CFATS program's effectiveness and efficiency. Importantly, it improves transparency regarding changes to tiers and the list of covered chemicals; requires improved reporting to Congress and assessments on how the program improves security; provides regulatory relief for certain covered facilities regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), and companies that participate in a CFATS recognition program; and extends authorization for the CFATS program for an additional five years."
