CHICAGO (AP) - Governor Rod Blagojevich says the country has dedicated more resources to homeland security since September 11th, 2001.
And the governor says Illinois has taken many steps to prevent a terrorist attack, including a mutual aid system and the completion of a new state operation center.
Blagojevich spoke this morning before observing a moment of silence in honor of the September Eleventh victims outside Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago.
The governor then proclaimed today a Day of Remembrance in Illinois.
After the ceremony, Blagojevich, Lieutenant Governor Pat Quinn and dozens of firefighters and police officers attended Mass at the church.
