The author relates on the issues surrounding the Coast Guard Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2010 and 2011 in the U.S. He cites that the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee has voted to reauthorize the Coast Guard for two years, while the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee approved several smaller bills. According to the author, most of these legislative movements are not enough to further support the Coast Guard.
