Commentary and Opinions

Governor Jerry Brown (D-CA) has signed urgently needed legislation aimed at increasing safety and services -- and decreasing violence and assaults -- in California’s five state hospitals, according to the Safety Now Coalition, a coalition of workers in California's Department of Mental Health Hospitals.

The District of Columbia Council uncovered a serious homeland security flaw this week that should raise red flags for mayors and town managers around the country. In the nation's capitol, local transportation officials aren't conducting oversight over CSX and the goods it transports through the city.

Editor’s note: In this article Denise Rucker Krepp, former Special Counsel to DOT General Counsel, Senior Counsel on the House Homeland Security Committee, and author of the 9/11 Act rail provisions, gives state, local officials a simple piece of advice regarding NDAs they signed with railroad companies regarding transportation of Bakken crude oil: Tear them up. They’re against the law.
