Port Security Bill Becomes Law

President George W. Bush signed the Security and Accountability for Every Port Act (SAFE Port) into law after the bill passed the House of Representatives on a 409 to 2 vote and by unanimous consent of the Senate.

Paul Kelly, senior vice president of the Retail Industry Leaders Association said, “All Americans can celebrate the signing of the SAFE Port act into law. This comprehensive cargo chain security legislation is now the law of the land thanks to months of hard work by a bipartisan group of lawmakers who worked with private sector stakeholders to develop comprehensive legislation that builds on the current supply chain security system.”
