International Dredging Review
MENUMENU

RAMP (Realize America’s Maritime Promise) members including Maritime Organizations and Associations in the Washington D.C. area have planned an advocacy day on May 13. The purpose of the “Maritime Industry Sail-In” on the Capitol Hill is to increase Congressional awareness of the importance of America’s maritime industry to the economic and national security of the United States and to generate support for the programs and policies important to the survival and growth of the United States-flag merchant marine and to the jobs of American merchant mariners and America’s maritime workforce according to a letter from Barry Holliday.
