Jan 10, 2007- 9-11 Commission Legislation As Critical for Port Security, Homeland Security
"Port security is essential to America's homeland security," said Congresswoman Kaptur, a member of the House Appropriations defense subcommittee. "Too few containers are being inspected, while our seaports and ports of entry remain understaffed to do the complete job of inspection of cargo, people, and luggage.
"Real security requires that we implement the recommendations of the 9-11 Commission. In the first 100 hours of this new Congress, with new leadership, we are finally meeting the expectations of the American people, six years after the 9-11 attacks, to address the gaps in our security systems."
