Which states are the worst for traveling to and from a major event?
The travel advisory board has decided that the states of Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Illinois should be considered a “high-risk” for terrorist attacks, but not for public safety.
The advisory board issued its final recommendation on Thursday, and states are not required to notify the public if they receive the letter.
The governors and other state leaders have a chance to veto the recommendation before it is put into effect.
The letter states that “no individual state may receive any direct financial or other assistance” from the Federal Government to carry out a terrorist attack, and “no State or local government may receive assistance in carrying out any attack or operation, including the planning and execution of such attack or attack.”
“As with any terrorist threat, we need to have the most effective security measures in place,” Virginia Gov.
Terry McAuliffe (D) said in a statement on Friday.
“These recommendations make it clear that no state or local governments will receive financial or any other assistance in providing these necessary protections.”
Governors in the other five states that received the letter, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Kentucky, and New Jersey, are expected to sign the letters on Sunday.
