NYPD officials have found some troubling fine print in President Obama's proposed budget.
The budget released Thursday proposes pulling funding in 2010 for the "Securing the Cities" program that the NYPD is using to develop a system to detect and repel radiological or nuclear terror threats.
Obama's budget does not continue the three-year pilot program.
Federal officials said the NYPD could apply each year for Homeland Security grants to keep the program going.
Rep. Peter King (R-L.I.) said it makes more sense to dedicate money for the necessary program than to roll the dice every year asking for money.
