Strongly Support H. R. 2440, the Full Utilization of the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund Act
Incredibly, harbors across the country are deteriorating while the Harbor Fees collected amounting to something over some $9 Billion were earmarked and to be made available for harbor maintenance.
This bill would allow those funds to be finally put to their intended use by maintaining America’s harbors.
Further we should be informed why the harbors, ports, seaways, etc. have been neglected for so long? Has there been corrupt intent or merely administrative neglect?
