Amid the heightened security, there’s one piece of advice that’s been overlooked.
The House passed a bill Wednesday that would require the president to certify the presence of any potential nuclear device within 500 feet of a home, an additional 50 feet from an office or school and a 100 feet from any other public building.
In theory, this means that a nuclear device could be detected if it was within the first 50 feet of any of those places, but the bill would require only that the President certify the situation, according to The Hill.
If a nuclear weapon were found inside a home within 500ft of the property, the bill states, “the person or persons responsible for securing the residence, or any person acting as the principal or custodian of the residence shall immediately notify the owner or occupant of the premises and notify the United States Secret Service or any Federal Law Enforcement agency.”
The bill would also require a federal agency to investigate “any report of a potential violation of the law or regulation pertaining to the detection of a nuclear-related threat in the vicinity of the home.”
The bill was introduced by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., a member of the House Intelligence Committee, and Sen. Ben Cardin, D of Maryland, who also sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The measure was signed into law by President Donald Trump on Wednesday.
It also comes amid a renewed debate over the threat posed by North Korea.
The country has tested multiple nuclear devices, including a missile last month that failed to reach the continental United States, but has never been able to deliver one on a large scale.
The North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, has also continued to threaten to carry out a sixth nuclear test.
Trump has been criticized for not being more aggressive on North Korea, saying in April that the U.S. should only attack the country if it threatens the United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Germany and China.
The House bill would still allow North Korea to develop and test weapons of mass destruction, including hydrogen bombs.
