Lawmakers Call for Dredging of Recreational Harbors in Michigan

U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters yesterday sent a bipartisan delegation letter to Trump Administration urging funding for dredging of recreational harbors in Michigan.

The letter was also signed by Representatives John Conyers, Sander Levin, Fred Upton, Bill Huizenga, Dan Kildee, Dave Trott, Debbie Dingell, Brenda Lawrence, John Moolenaar, Jack Bergman, and Paul Mitchell.

These harbors are critical to commercial and recreational navigation, public safety, and the economies of our state and local communities” wrote the lawmakers. “We hope to see funds set aside for this long overdue and much needed work in the FY2018 U.S. Army Corp of Engineers budget proposal.”

The letter was sent to the Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney requesting the funding for dredging of recreational and commercial harbors in Michigan to be included in the fiscal year 2018 budget.

According to Senator Stabenow, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has not included operation and maintenance funding to dredge Michigan harbors over the last several fiscal years.
