Upon re-reading this, I see the crime log itself is not public, it is only avalable to the coast guard and FBI. But the Coast Guard will maintain a public web site with statistical data. I hope this means that web site will have meaningful data, that is limited to cases that merit investigation, (not just allegations).
The more I read this bill the more I would support it. I see some things the cruise lines will object to on a cost basis, but I believe they are worth it to make these unrealistic allegations of ships as havens for crime go away.
