Title: Precarious Legal "Hot Zone"--The President’s Plan to Combat Bioterrorism
Author: Sutton, Victoria
Abstract: This article focuses on a plan for biological and chemical weapons that should be distinguished from the approach to a plan for all other technological threats. While the United States skills in planning to combat nuclear weapons and other technological weapons have been practiced throughout the cold war, skills in beginning to comprehend and meet the threat of chemical and biological warfare on a domestic level have only recently begun to be developed fully. The article also examines the present status of federal, state, and local preparedness and proposes such changes to statutes and federal regulations and to the implementation of currently applicable statutes to enable our federal, state, and local resources to be effectively used in research, preparedness, as well as in emergency responsiveness.
