Okay I found bill number S.3204

"A bill to amend title 46, United States Code, to establish requirements to ensure the security and safety of passengers and crew on cruise vessels, and for other purposes."

It was introduced by Kerry on my birthday 6/26/08. When I tried to read the text I got this message.

"The text of S.3204 has not yet been received from GPO
Bills are generally sent to the Library of Congress from the Government Printing Office a day or two after they are introduced on the floor of the House or Senate. Delays can occur when there are a large number of bills to prepare or when a very large bill has to be printed."

So I guess I will have to check back on this one. I don't trust newspaper accounts of legislation and Federal Legislation is more confusing because they don't print the whole law if they are amending a code section. They just print the changes. So you have to pull up the code section to understand the changes. Insert they remove that just doesn't make sense if it's not in context.

Here is a link to the bill for when they do add the text.
