This article presents information on the U.S. President George W. Bush's proposed 2006 budget for the Homeland Security Department which includes $3.6 billion in grants to states, local governments and other entities for terrorism prevention and preparedness. The grants, which will be administered by the department's Office of State and Local Government Coordination and Preparedness, have stirred up controversy on Capitol Hill. Debate centers on whether money should be spread throughout the country to ensure every area is prepared, or directed to the most likely terrorist targets.
