The last of the large nightboats operating on the inland waters of the North American continent, the sternwheel riverboat, DELTA QUEEN, came one step closer to getting a new lease on life recently when the United States Senate passed a maritime bill which included an exemption for the ship from the 1966 Safety at Sea legislation. As the House of Representatives had already passed a similar bill, the fate of the QUEEN now depends on the decision of a Conference Committee to which the bill will go. This is where the toughest fight is expected, but maybe, just maybe, public pressure will be enough to ensure the continued operation of this historic vessel.
