USA: Hahn Supports Harbor Maintenance Programs

Congresswoman Janice Hahn (CA-44) issued the following statement regarding her vote on the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2013:

I was very pleased to vote in support of the bi-partisan Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2013. This important legislation provides long-needed investment to our nation’s ports, creates good paying jobs and strengthens our infrastructure. I have been pushing for this kind of progress since I came to Congress. I am encouraged that the bill increases utilization of the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund and begins to address the expanded use needs of major commercial ports.

“As a representative of the country’s busiest port complex and the co-founder of the PORTS Caucus, I am intimately familiar with the vital role ports play in our nation’s economic health and global competiveness. Congress now recognizes that our ports aren’t just gateways, they are engines—of growth, of prosperity, and of jobs. This is strong step forward, but we still have much more work to do.

“I will remain committed in my efforts to keep our nation’s water infrastructure needs at the forefront of our national dialogue.”
