Today, the House will consider H.R. 2440, the “Full Utilization of the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund Act.” I write to request your support for this bipartisan bill. The legislation is simple; it provides a discretionary cap adjustment to allow the full utilization
of the funds collected for the express purpose of maintaining our harbors and ports. Similar language has passed out of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on a bipartisan basis in the past few Congresses. This Congress, I am joined by my colleagues
Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Ranking Member Sam Graves, Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment Chairwoman Grace Napolitano and Ranking Member Bruce Westerman, and Congressman Mike Kelly as original cosponsors.
