AAPA Chair Testifies Before House T&I Subcommittee, Urges Timely Passage of WRDA

Yesterday, AAPA Board Chair and Port Tampa Bay CEO Paul Anderson testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment hearing on proposals and stakeholder priorities to consider for a Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2024.

In his testimony, Chair Anderson outlines WRDA’s key functions and benefits for Port Tampa Bay and ports across the United States. The legislation, Anderson explains, “is a lifeline for our nation’s economic and infrastructure progress.” Anderson’s testimony highlights the importance of WRDA to the entire country and encourages Congress to maintain a bipartisan tradition of WRDA bills on a two-year cycle.
