Following the 2013 attack on a California power plant, Sen. Charles Schumer is pushing for tougher security at power plants across the country, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“The fact that these snipers were able to inflict so much damage — and that they are still out there — means we need to rethink the way we implement security measures at our power plants. This is not something that we can rely on the utility industry to do," Schumer said Sunday, according to the Journal.

Snipers cut telephone cables and knocked out 17 transformers in the April 16 attack at the Pacific Gas & Electric's Metcalf transmission substation in San Jose.

The Journal reported earlier this month that then-Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Jon Wellinghoff characterized it as “the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the U.S. power grid ever occurred."
