Advocating a Modern National System of Ports & Inland Waterways
Our nation's waterways Keep America Moving, provide family-wage American jobs, support exports, and protect the environment. They relieve traffic congestion, are the most energy-efficient mode of surface transportation, and are vital to our agriculture, manufacturing and energy sectors.
Fourth "R" Support Higher Funding Levels for River Infrastructure
The fourth "R" for rivers and its aging infrastructure - can't be forgotten among Roads, Railways and Runways. Our waterways allow the nation's critical commodities - grain, coal, agricultural inputs, steel, petroleum products, chemicals, and aggregate materials - to be used domestically and to reach the export market in the most cost-competitve way.
