Cargo security

Two amendments to the 2006 appropriations bill for the Department of Homeland Security (H.R. 2360) would mandate new cargo security measures. The first amendment would require that all air cargo be inspected before being loaded onto passenger airplanes. This provision would take effect in 2008. The second amendment to the bill, which would take effect immediately after the bill is enacted, would require that passengers be notified that unscreened cargo is being loaded onto their flight. H.R. 2360 has been approved by the House and is now awaiting action in the Senate.
