INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
The Jones Act

Air date: Thurs., Oct. 12, 8:00 pm

The recent devastation in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria re-ignited discussion about the Jones Act, the federal legislation that aims to protect American maritime workers. The Jones Act was blamed for preventing foreign vessels from assisting in recovery efforts in Puerto Rico; eventually, The Trump Administration temporarily lifted the shipping restriction there. How would the Jones Act affect Hawai‘i in an emergency situation? Is it time to review the legislation for reform, or repeal?
