The U.S. Representative for Oregon’s 4th congressional district, Peter DeFazio, Ranking Member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, yesterday announced $8.7 million in funding for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the dredging of Oregon’s ports and other operations and maintenance.

These funds will allow the Army Corps to keep our ports in top shape, both today and in the future. I’m proud to support infrastructure investments like this, and will continue to push for increased investments as the top Democrat on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.”
