St. Louis Cardinals Seek to Boost Security at Busch Stadium

Oct 11, 2017

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill is asking the Department of Homeland Security to give ``full consideration'' to an effort by the St. Louis Cardinals to enhance security and anti-terrorism measures at Busch Stadium.

The Cardinals are seeking certification under the Safety Act, which encourages anti-terrorism technologies and practices by providing protection against lawsuits that could be filed against the certified site if a terrorist attack occurred.

McCaskill wrote to Acting Homeland Security Director Elaine Duke Wednesday in support of the application.

The Oct. 1 shooting deaths of 58 people at a concert in Las Vegas raised new concerns about safety at entertainment venues.
