Senator Young Tours Burns Harbor

U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.), a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, yesterday visited the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor.

Senator Young has worked on several issues in support of the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor during his time in the Senate, including supporting the Port’s application for a U.S. Department of Transportation FASTLANE grant.

He has supported policies to promote the continued success of Great Lakes commerce by fighting for regulatory certainty for Great Lakes users. He has also advocated on behalf of crucial dredging and restoration projects in Northwest Indiana, and he urged for the Army Corps’ expeditious review of the Soo Lock project to provide for the efficient flow of goods on Lake Michigan.

Indiana’s ports are an important asset that help Hoosier businesses sell to the world,” Senator Young said. “It’s important for Congress to craft policies and invest in the infrastructure to help them thrive. Burns Harbor in particular is an economic engine for the Northwest Indiana, and I look forward to our continual cooperation.”

Business activities at Indiana’s three ports contribute $7.8 billion per year to the state economy and support 60,000 jobs. The Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor is home to 30 businesses.
