According to the Homeland Security Department, New York has no national monuments or icons - a determination that led to a 40 percent cut in anti-terrorism funding. New Yorkers were angered by the news, with some demanding the firing of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. US Rep. Peter King, a New York Republican, charged that the Bush administration had "declared war on New York" with its decision to reduce anti-terrorism funding by $83 million (€65.2 million) while increases went to smaller cities like Jacksonville, Florida; Louisville, Kentucky; and Omaha, Nebraska.
