According to the Toronto Globe & Mail, Congress on September 30 passed a new port-security bill that one lawmaker touted as a "major leap ahead" in securing the U.S. homeland.  The bill, which allocates $400 million per year over five years for training and exercises at ports, now goes to President Bush's desk for signing.  Terms of the bill mandate that the top 22 U.S. ports have radiation detectors installed by the end of 2007.  The bill also requires background checks and IDs for port workers, and pilot programs will be created for testing new cargo-inspection technology.
