THE REGULATORY ENVIRONMENT. MARITIME TRANSPORTATION STRATEGIC PLANNING. PROCEEDINGS OF A TRB WORKSHOP, JUNE 5-7, 1991, WASHINGTON, D.C.
This workshop presentation discusses the current regulatory environment in the U.S. maritime industry. The laws that have been written and rewritten over the last 75 years are described as a quagmire, mainly because today's marketplace bears little resemblance to the marketplace for which those laws were enacted. An American flag carrier today finds itself competing in a regulatory environment that allows foreign-flag carriers to have more rights and competitive opportunity than a U.S.-flag carrier. Also, certain U.S.-flag carriers compete on a more equal basis than others. There is a need for a "level playing field".
