2 Senators, Aid Groups Oppose Cargo Preference Provision In Coast Guard Reauthorization Bill

Roll Call: Food Aid Shipping Issue Could Block House Bill
“The House overwhelmingly passed the Coast Guard reauthorization bill Wednesday. But it faces opposition from two senators due to a provision that they say it would make it more expensive to ship U.S. food aid to countries in need. … A coalition of non-government organizations and aid groups including Oxfam America, Catholic Relief Services, and InterAction, also opposes the cargo preference provision in the House bill” (Curry, 12/4).
