I would like to see the Passenger Services Act rewritten to protect our best interests but it won't be repealed. While the act limits cruising it protects our airlines and cargo vessels.

Take care,

Maybe the Passenger Services act could be revised to just cover cruise ships that have a presence here year round. The cruise Industry is a multi billion dollar industry and money talks in Washington, you never know what could happen.
