FMC authorization bill


US Senator Fischer introduced the Federal Maritime Commission Authorization Act of 2017 (S. 1119) to authorize appropriations for fiscal years 2018 and 2019 for the Federal Maritime Commission, and for other purposes.  Included in the appropriations bill is a international ocean shipping supply chain information portal demonstration project.  The vision for the portal is that it will collect and disseminate inforamtion to increase overall supply chain visibility, reliability, and resilience with respect to international ocean shipping.
