Donald Carcieri for review. The bill seeks to prohibit from the vessel security zone — described as two miles ahead of the vessel, one mile behind and 1,000 yards on either side — the presence of people, waterfront facilities, flammable materials, places where welding is being performed and places from which an incendiary device could be launched.
