ILTA Supports Legislation to Assure TWIC Reader Rule Delay

ILTA is continuing its efforts to save terminal operators from making costly capital investments. ILTA formed a working group to prepare comments supporting the USCG's delay when published in the Federal Register. Additionally, ILTA is joining other industry associations to seek legislative changes that will officially change the TWIC Reader dates in law. The legislative language is being advanced during the conference negotiations on the National Defense Authorization Act of 2022 (NDAA). The NDAA is likely to be passed in the lame-duck session after the November elections. ILTA will continue its advocacy efforts to save terminal operators from making unnecessary capital expenditures.

In June 2022, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, acting through the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) issued a notice in the federal government's Spring Unified Agenda that the TWIC Reader Rule would be delayed for another three years until approximately May 2026. The USCG informed ILTA and its members at the Fall EHS&S meeting that a forthcoming Federal Register Notice would be issued in the fall. The USCG also indicated that it would like to release a public version of the Rand Corporation report ordered by DHS to assess the TWIC readers. Neither the Federal Register Notice nor the Rand report has been issued yet.
