As Federal Protective Service turns 15, Congress might change its role

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the event that sparked the creation of the Federal Protective Service; the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City.

Homeland Security Today editor David Silverberg brings us analysis of what this change could mean.
