I know I've called for the Space Jones Act, but maybe you need the regular Jones Act in here as well.  Specifically what it does is require goods shipped between US ports to be carried on US flagged vessels, which has some pretty big impacts for shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico (and other places, also notably it's why even domestic cruises usually have at least one foreign layover, to circumvent the Jones Act).
