Fortress DC: New Capitol lockdown plan in works

• Washington Examiner
Architect of the Capitol Stephen Ayers told Washington Secrets that the plan is to spend $7.8 million to secure House and Senate garages “very quickly” should an attacker try bust in. “It’s the ability to kind of secure our garages from entry in a very fast manner,” he said after briefly describing the funding request to a congressional committee.

Ayers said the targets are “car bombs or groups of people or whatever the threat may be.”
