Louisiana Congressman Gets Port Dredging

Per the request of Congressman Jeff Landry, the U.S. House Budget Committee has added language to its Fiscal Year 2013 budget that would fully allocate all Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund (HMTF) proceeds for its intended purpose: dredging the nation’s waterways.

Landry, who led a bipartisan coalition of 72 House Members calling for proper port dredging, is pleased the HMTF language was added. “I am thrilled the Budget Committee has chosen to honor my request and apportion the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund for dredging,” said Landry.

“Dredging our nation’s ports will put Americans back to work and return economic prosperity to our manufacturing, agriculture, and energy sectors. Having this issue addressed in the Budget Report ensures government bureaucrats cannot use dredge funding for other purposes,” concluded Landry.
