Vice President Biden Visits Norfolk

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden visited Norfolk Wednesday to promote a $15 million federal TIGER grant for the Virginia Port Authority.

The grant would help the City’s infrastructure at Norfolk International Terminals, easing transportation, which, in turn, will create commerce and employment.

“What most people don’t realize is that our economic maritime power is just as important to our economic security as our military maritime power is essential to our security. And again, that’s not hyperbole,” Biden said. “It is the single most important part of the economic chain that allows us to prosper. Shipping is the lifeline of our economic being.”

The Vice President was joined on stage at Nauticus by Mayor Paul Fraim, Paul “Chip” Jaenichen, John Reinhart, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, U.S. Senator Mark Warner and U.S. Congressman Bobby Scott.
