Description
 
U.S. agriculture generates $1 trillion in annual economic activity, but concerns exist about the sector’s vulnerability to a natural or deliberate introduction of foreign livestock, poultry, & crop pests & disease. Under the Ag’l. Quarantine Inspect. (AQI) program, international passengers & cargo are inspected at U.S. ports of entry to seize prohibited material & intercept foreign ag’l. pests. The Homeland Sec’y. Act of 2002 transferred AQI inspect. from the U.S. Dept. of Ag. (USDA) to the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS). This report examined: (1) the extent to which USDA & DHS have changed the inspection program since the transfer; (2) how the agencies have managed & coordinated their respon.; & (3) how funding for AQI has been managed since the transfer.
