WASHINGTON, D.C. — Final passage of the U.S. supplemental appropriations bill to help the country recover from the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks is expected soon.

The US$30 billion measure would provide additional funding to many federal agencies and departments, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

Its total allocation is $19,300,000 with $4,200,000 earmarked to implement the hazardous materials background check requirement of the Patriot Act; $10, 000,000 for drivers’ licence fraud detection and prevention; the northern border safety and security study; and hazardous material security education and outreach.

Another $5,100,000 is designated for coordination of drivers’ license registration and Social Security number verification.
