Most USP&I adjusters are former ships officers with extensive maritime backgrounds

House Passes $250-Million
The U.S. House of Representa- tives recently passed by voice vote a special subsidy bill (HR-5220) that would authorize the appropriation of $250 million "to protect the na- tional defense shipyards of the
United States" by helping to build ships domestically.
The legislation would authorize the appropriation of $200 million in "shipyard incentive payments" of not more than 50 percent of the price to construct a commercial vessel in a U.S. yard, to be paid to the shipyard submitting the lowest bid. It would also authorize $50 million to finance the purchase of commercially obsolete vessels by the Secretary of Transportation for inclusion in the National Defense
The new ships would be built for the government's account and then either chartered or sold to private operators for operation in U.S. for- eign trade.
The bill is subject to Senate pas- sage. Actual appropriation of the money will depend upon passage of a separate spending bill.
