Sarbanes Applauds House Passage of Bill That Makes Critical Investments in Maryland's Infrastructure
Legislation strengthens Port of Baltimore, one of Maryland’s most important economic assets
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) today applauded House passage of a measure that will make important federal investments in improving Maryland’s infrastructure and maintaining the Port of Baltimore.
“Bringing our nation's critical infrastructure into the 21st Century is a wise economic and environmental investment,” said Congressman Sarbanes. “The Port of Baltimore generates thousands of Maryland jobs and serves as a critical hub of international commerce. This bill will help ensure the Port continues to play these critical roles well into the future.”
Congressman Sarbanes is committed to putting Marylanders back to work by rebuilding our state’s roads, bridges, schools, public transportation, water and sewer systems, which are in desperate need of repair. The Water Resources Reform & Development Act (H.R. 3080), which passed the House today, will help upgrade our water and sewer systems and modernize our waterways and ports - integral commercial corridors that create jobs, encourage trade, and help expand our economy. By making these necessary investments now, we can spur our economy forward and prepare for the future.
