From the Purpose and Summary: "H.R. 5273, the 'Securing America's Ports Act' was introduced to improve border security at land ports of entry by increasing the inspection rate of commercial and passenger vehicles entering the U.S. with non-intrusive inspection (NII) systems or similar technology. The bill requires the Secretary of Homeland Security (the Secretary) to develop a plan with incremental timeframes, cost estimates, and projected impacts of increasing expeditious scanning rates of vehicles to 100 percent at each land port of entry. The measure also directs the Department of Homeland Security (the Department or DHS) to conduct research and development of NII systems and refine their operational use in furtherance of the plan. The Secretary must also report annually to Congress on the Department's progress implementing its plan until it has achieved 100 percent scanning of commercial and passenger vehicles."
