S 2444 – Introduced – FY 2015 CG Authorization

As I noted earlier this month, Sen. Begich (D,AK) introduced S 2444, the Coast Guard Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2015 and 2016. As has been common for a number of years now, there is no mention of chemical security issues or operations under the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA).

The only mention of chemical transportation safety issues is a revision for vessel oil spill response plans that provides for worst case scenario planning oil drilling rigs {§508}.

As I mentioned earlier today, there will be a markup of this bill this week. I doubt that we will see any language on chemical security issues.
