The Modernizing of Documentation and Elimination of Redundant Identification and Security Credentials Act (H.R. 1690 or the MODERN Act) would eliminate redundant security threat assessments and credentialing programs for transportation workers transporting certain hazardous materials.
In May 2011, the Subcommittee on Transportation Security reported favorably on H.R. 1690, or the MODERN Act, to the full House Committee on Homeland Security. The MODERN Act would require the Department of Homeland Security to eliminate redundancies in various transportation security credentialing regulations.
TFI supports H.R. 1690, The Modernizing of Documentation and Elimination of Redundant Identification and Security Credentials Act.
