Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On June - 11 - 2010

Today, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed legislation authored by Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) in the House of Representatives and championed by Senator John F. Kerry in the Senate. H.R. 3360, the Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act, which was passed with bipartisan support in the House last November, is a critical and common-sense fix which will provide safety and security to Americans who go on cruise vacations without realizing they are not protected under U.S. laws when they leave its territorial waters. The Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act requires cruise lines to report crimes at sea to the FBI and the U.S. Coast Guard.
