Carl Cosponsors CRUISE Act

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) issued the following statement regarding his cosponsorship of the Careful Resumption Under Improved Safety Enhancement (CRUISE) Act.

I’m proud to be an original cosponsor of the Careful Resumption Under Improved Safety Enhancement (CRUISE) Act, which would direct the CDC to come to the table and work with us to get our cruise ships back at sea. It’s time for the CDC to remove any order or regulation preventing cruise ships from operating in the U.S. by July 4th, which matches President Biden’s timeline for a return to normal. The cruise industry is especially important to our local and state economy, with countless local businesses relying on cruise traffic to stay afloat.

The CRUISE Act was introduced by Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar (FL-27) and Rep. Don Young (AK-AL).
