Civil Defense Letter Responses

 Whoever opens Sen. Crapo's letters reads them competently.  From his response:

Beginning in 1961, the U.S. government provided grants for the creation of nuclear fallout shelters in schools, hospitals and in certain state and local government buildings. These shelters were stocked with roughly two weeks’ worth of shelf stable food and water. However, in 1971, the U.S. government began to phase out the stocking of shelters as the fear of nuclear attack began to wane.

I agree that effectively countering U.S. enemies will take a deliberative, whole-of-government response. The increasing interconnectedness of our world requires that Congress and the Administration regularly asses and develop methods to ensure Americans and our homeland remain protected. I appreciate you taking the time to share your suggestions with me regarding the construction of additional nuclear fallout shelters. These recommendations are helpful to me as we move forward in the 117 th Congress.
