At an evening session, the U.S. House of Representatives agreed to and passed an amended version of the Maritime Transportation Antiterrorism Act of 2002 (H.R. 3983). The text of the bill, as passed, should be available soon. Immediately after passing the bill, the House appointed its members of the Conference Committee: Young (R-AK), Coble (R-NC), LoBiondo (R-NJ), Oberstar (D-MN), Brown (D-FL), Thomas (R-CA), Crane (R-IL), and Rangel (D-NY). The onus is now on the Senate to appoint its Conference Committee members in order that unified maritime security legislation can be enacted. Source: HK Law
