Port Security

By  | 

President Bush is not finding many supporters on this one, not among Republicans or Democrats in Congress or in governor's mansions.

But he's standing behind the decision to let a business owned by the United Arab Emirates take over shipping operations at six major US seaports. He says there's no chance that it will jeopardize US security.

Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine and Democratic Congresswoman Jane Harman of California say they will offer a "joint resolution of disapproval" when Congress reconvenes.

Republican Congressman Pete King and Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer, both of New York, say they'll introduce emergency legislation to suspend the ports deal.
