TWIC Reader Rule Officially Put On Hold

On August 2nd, President Trump signed into law the Transportation Worker Identification Credential Accountability Act of 2018 (HR.5729).  This formally prohibits the Coast Guard from implementing the Rule until DHS submits a satisfactory assessment of the TWIC program to Congress.

Furthermore, a U. S. District Court (Eastern, Virginia) issued a court order delaying the Rule at certain CDC facilities “until a further order of the court.”  This is in response to lawsuits from several industry groups.

We will track this activity closely and keep you all informed.
