Legislation Enacted To 'Protect' Citizens From An EMP Attack And Power Grid Failure?

Legislation that allegedly protects citizens against an EMP attack was just signed into law, but you're not going to believe what it actually says...

Instead of requiring the government and utility companies to take the necessary steps to secure and improve our power grid, the legislation simply outlines to citizens what steps must be taken to protect themselves WHEN the power grid fails.

"The legislation, SB 1476, was introduced by Sen. David Farnsworth, R-Mesa.
