Congress bio detection system still not working

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- Twenty years after an anthrax attack on Members of Congress, a new report says the federal government still doesn’t have an effective bio detection system.

Former South Dakota Senator Tom Daschle says a similar attack could happen now.

Daschle says he sponsored a bill setting up a biowatch program when he was in the Senate.

Daschle says many areas are vulnerable to a potential attack today.

Daschle says Congress and the federal government need to take it seriously and lead on enhancing detection and protections against bio weapons.
