AWO Congratulates Subcommittee on Passage of Coast Guard Authorization Bill

We congratulate Chairman Maloney on the passage of his first authorization bill as Chairman of the House Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee. H.R. 3409 contains several provisions vital to the continued well-being of the U.S. tugboat, towboat and barge industry that are the result of Chairman Maloney’s sound judgment and leadership. AWO offers its thanks to the bipartisan work of Chairman Maloney and Ranking Member Bob Gibbs, and we look forward to working with them—as well as with House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman DeFazio and Ranking Member Graves—to enact H.R. 3409 with all deliberate speed.
