Congressman Ander Crenshaw, Chairman of the House Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Subcommittee, said the signed Army Corps of Engineers Chiefs Report means a path is paved for congressional approval of JAXPORT dredging.
“What a ‘giant step’ forward for the Northeast Florida economy,” said Crenshaw after learning that the Chiefs Report had been signed. “Dredging of the St. Johns River means more jobs, more trade, and more economic growth for the region; that is why I have stood 100% behind this project from day one. We have got a win-win that will grow the economy and create jobs for generations to come.”
Crenshaw has long supported the JAXPORT dredging project, most recently through the fiscal year 2014 Omnibus Appropriations Bill.
