RAMP Act Gets 100th Sponsor

The Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund Fairness Coalition announced on June 14 that H.R. 104, The RAMP Act, signed Representative Bob Gibbs (R-OH) as its 100th cosponsor. Rep. Gibbs is the chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment.

The RAMP Act, introduced by Congressman Charles Boustany R-LA) and Congressman Joe Courtney (D-CT), and supported by a broad bi-partisan group of Congressional interests, would ensure that funds in the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund are used for their intended purpose of dredging and maintaining coastal ports, harbors, and waterways.

“I applaud Representative Boustany for putting together a bipartisan piece of legislation that ensures the money that goes into the HMTF is used specifically for these critical projects improving our nation's infrastructure," said Rep. Gibbs said.
