ASTA: ‘House passes Alaska Cruise Bill’
ASTA issues the following statement in response to unanimous House passage today of the Alaska Tourism Restoration Act (H.R. 1318), which would create a temporary, targeted waiver from the Passenger Vessel Services Act of 1886 by deeming certain roundtrip voyages between Alaska and Washington State as foreign voyages for the purposes of U.S. law.

After a few minor procedural steps, it will soon to go President Biden for his signature.

"ASTA welcomes unanimous House passage of the Alaska Tourism Restoration Act and commends Congressman Young and Senators Murkowski and Sullivan and others for their dogged efforts to salvage part of the 2021 Alaska cruise season. Since February, ASTA has advocated for this legislation, and it was one of the policy 'asks' in more than 170 Congressional meetings as part of ASTA Legislative Day just yesterday. We call on President Biden to sign it as soon as possible.

"While our members continue to face challenges and need additional support from the government, setting this framework for 2021 Alaska cruising is a big step in the right direction. We again commend Congress for taking this necessary step and thank our cruise line partners for the work they put in here and to restart cruising generally. We're proud of the part we played in this success."
