Official Title

To amend title 14, United States Code, to improve the organization of such title and to incorporate certain transfers and modifications into such title, and for other purposes.

Summary

Coast Guard Improvement and Reform Act of 2017 This bill reorganizes several provisions of title 14 (Coast Guard) of the United States Code, including U.S. Coast Guard acquisitions, and other provisions. The bill expands the duties of several federal advisory committees that provide advice to the Coast Guard, including the National Commercial Fishing Safety Advisory Committee, by requiring that each committee meet at least once per year.Additionally, each committee must terminate on September 30, 2027. Currently, some committees are permanent and some have earlier termination dates. The bill also repeals the provision that allows enlisted members of the Coast Guard who are discharged for bad conduct, undesirability, unsuitability, or inaptitude to be furnished civilian clothing at a cost not to exceed $30 per person.

    No text is available on congress.gov, either. It concerns Title 14 and property transfers, but that is all that is stated. It's not Countable's fault.

    The current administration made it very clear when they put out their budget that they were going to cut Coast Guard funding, by a lot, and increase funding in other branches of the Military....possible precursor to selling off prime ocean front property owned by Coast Guard? Don't know and can't tell by information posted here. Here is a link to congress.gov https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/1726/text

    Most Of Us Don't Travel Maritime. And Thus Don't Appreciate Those Complexities Involved In Maritime Security.
