USA: Senator Visits Port of Duluth-Superior

This month, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin is taking a tour of Wisconsin’s freshwater coasts, focusing on how the Great Lakes, Mississippi River and other major waterways contribute to the state’s economy and quality of life.

Last week, Senator Baldwin visited the Genoa National Fish Hatchery in Vernon County, Lock and Dam 6 in Trempealeau, the St. Croix Crossing, and the Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway. On Friday, she stopped in Superior to visit the Fraser Shipyard and the Port of Duluth-Superior.

At the Port of Duluth-Superior, Senator Baldwin met with stakeholders to discuss how the Port and the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) support commerce and economy. She helped pass WRRDA, which addresses the Great Lakes dredging crisis and invests in Wisconsin’s water infrastructure.

The visit was also a chance for Senator Baldwin to receive an update on projects and developments following her visit to the Port last August.
