EMPact America supports two bills that are currently before Congress: H.Res. 762 and H.R. 668. Please join us and show your support by filling out both of the message sections below (one in green, the other in a rusty color).
H.Res. 762: Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding community-based civil defense and power generation. - This resolution encourages communities to provide 20% of the electric power needed locally, which is clearly necessary given the current exposed risks of the national electric grid to such threats as cyber attack, severe solar storms, nuclear EMP attack, and more.
H.R. 668: Secure High-voltage Infrastructure for Electricity from Lethal Damage (SHIELD Act) - EMPact America fully endorses the SHIELD Act (HR 668). The SHIELD Act was introduced by Congressman Trent Franks, with broad co-sponsorship, to protect our country against natural and manmade EMP threats and vulnerabilities. It has already gained broad bi-partisan support, but it needs to be a top priority for every member of Congress (House and Senate).
The "widget" on the right side of this page above (titled "Comments Sent to Congress") is a live-updated stream of comments posted by people who support H.R. 668 (the SHIELD Act) and have written to their Representatives to ask for support of this important bill.
