Commissioner Dye Joins the Federal Maritime Commission

Friday, January 17, 2003
The Federal Maritime Commission announced that Commissioner Rebecca F. Dye has assumed her duties at the Commission. Dye was nominated by President Bush to serve the remainder of a 5-year term expiring June 30, 2005. She was sworn-in by former Chairman and current Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao on December 19, 2002. Dye comes to the Commission with an extensive background in maritime matters. For the past 15 years, she served as a Committee Counsel in the U.S. House of Representatives. Between 1995 and 2002, she served as Counsel to the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee; from 1987 to 1995, she served as Minority Counsel for the Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee. Her prior work includes assignments in the Maritime Administration of the Department of Transportation, and the United States Coast Guard.

Dye graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1974, and earned a law degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1977. Dye resides in suburban Maryland with her husband David Dye and their daughter Caroline. Dye stated that she is looking forward to working to guarantee that shippers, common carriers, ocean transportation intermediaries and ports regulated by the Commission are provided with a fair market environment in which to operate. She is also committed to eliminating unfair shipping practices by foreign governments and to protecting cruise passengers against undue financial risk.

Chairman Blust remarked that he is "looking forward to working with Commissioner Dye. She brings to the Commission a significant background in maritime law and a strong commitment to government service." He stated that "she should have much to contribute as the Commission goes forward in its efforts to ensure fair maritime competition".
