work with TWICs as an access control measure. It discusses additional 
potential requirements associated with TWIC readers, such as 
recordkeeping requirements for those owners or operators required to 
use an electronic reader, and amendments to security plans previously 
approved by the Coast Guard to incorporate TWIC requirements.
    This rulemaking action, once final, would enhance the security of 
ports and vessels by ensuring that only persons who hold valid TWICs 
are granted unescorted access to secure areas on vessels and port 
facilities. It would also complete the implementation of the Maritime 
Transportation Security Act of 2002 transportation security card 
requirement, as well as the requirements of the Security and
