From the Purpose and Summary: "The purpose of H.R. 2539, the Strengthening Local Transportation Security Capabilities Act of 2019, is to improve threat information sharing and law enforcement training for surface transportation security. This bill requires the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to prioritize the assignment of officers and intelligence analysts from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) to fusion centers in jurisdictions with high-risk surface transportation assets, in order to participate in the generation and dissemination of intelligence products, and to make security clearances available to appropriate stakeholders. This bill also enables the Secretary to develop a training program through the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) to enhance the protection, preparedness, and response capabilities of law enforcement agencies for terrorism incidents at surface transportation assets."
