Ron Klein Port Security Bill

Florida State Senator Ron Klein is proposing a port bill.

Klein is proposing legislation that would give incentives to ports to inspect more containers. His plan would spend $10 million dollars to hire more inspectors and buy equipment.

Klein says inspecting five percent of containers coming into the country is not acceptable.

He says since the September 11th attacks, homeland security has focused mainly on airports and now it's time to beef up security at ports.

Jeb Bush is against the bill.
