Coast Guard by, Taylor Wray

Homeland Security is the parent agency of the Coast Guard, so Secretary of Homeland Security is John F. Kelly

The United States Coast Guard was established on January 28, 1915 and became a part of the Department of Transportation on April 1, 1967

The Coast Guard was created to protect the public, the environment, and U.S. economic interests in the Nation's ports and waterways, along the coast, on international waters, or in any maritime region, as required, to support national security

Some of the Coast Guard duties are search and rescue operations in and over the high seas and navigable waters, maritime law enforcement, marine inspection and licensing, pilotage of the Great Lakes, protection of the marine environment by enforcing the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, ensuring the safety and security of ports and anchorages, maintaining the management of waterways, providing navigational aids, and regulating the construction, maintenance and operation of bridges and causeways across navigable waters

The Coast Guard tries to control Market Failures by controlling the information they distribute and how it's distributed as well as how they provide their services for us in the best manor possible

Government officials are saying there needs to be better oversight of its testing and contracting of policies after a federal review and subsequent reporting found numerous operational deficiencies in the Coast Guard's largest and most technologically advanced ships
