Waterways Work for America


Chamber Celebrates Passage of the Water Resources Reform & Development Act – Learn More


A Vital Investment in America: Modernizing the nation’s marine transportation system can create American jobs, increase exports, and inject billions of dollars into the U.S. economy.

The 113th Congress has the opportunity to pass a Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) - kick-starting strategic investment in our ports and inland waterways, increasing American competitiveness and, in the process, creating hundreds of thousands of high-paying U.S. jobs.
