The article reports on the Supply Chain Security Coalition's call for the passage of a strong port security bill in the U.S. as of September 8, 2006. The coalition said in a letter that screening of all cargo is unrealistic and could potentially decrease security. The substance of the Senate bill was not disclosed, but it could mirror legislation approved by a Senate panel in May for a pilot program at three foreign ports to test and establish a 100 percent-integrated screening system within one year.
