Maritime Cargo Scans Shouldn't Be Delayed, U.S. Lawmakers Say
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano should meet a 2012 deadline to inspect all maritime cargo bound for the U.S. to ensure it's free of explosives, lawmakers said today.
Representatives Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told Napolitano in a letter today that members have concerns about her agency’s lack of progress in meeting the deadline set in a 2007 law passed in response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He was joined by fellow Democrats Edward Markey of Massachusetts and Jerrold Nadler of New York.
