Monday, February 11, 2013

USA Maritime & its member organizations applaud the launch of a new bipartisan Congressional Maritime Caucus.

The organization also thanked the new Caucus Co-Chairs Representatives Cedric Richmond (LA-02) and Michael G. Grimm (NY-11) for their work in helping to raise awareness about critical maritime-related issues.

“USA Maritime is proud to welcome the new Congressional Maritime Caucus. We look forward to a strong and successful working relationship with the new Co-Chairs Cedric Richmond and Michael Grimm and the membership of the Caucus as we strive to ensure the long-term readiness of the U.S.-flag fleet,” said James L. Henry, Chairman of USA Maritime. “At a time of great budgetary uncertainty, the U.S. Merchant Marine remains committed to working with our allies in Congress and the Administration to strengthen and protect our nation’s vital sealift capacity and to ensure the safe, reliable and cost-effective delivery of essential military equipment, emergency relief supplies and food assistance around the world – whenever and wherever needed.”

“We are pleased to see that maritime issues will be a priority in the 113th Congress,” said Clint Eisenhauer, Vice President of Government Relations at Maersk. “The U.S. Merchant Marine, and the entire shipping industry, is a vital contributor not only to the U.S. economy, but to its military and foreign aid programs, as well, and so we commend Representatives Richmond and Grimm for their efforts to ensure the strength of the nation’s sealift capacity.”

USA Maritime is a coalition of ship owning companies, maritime labor organizations and maritime trade associations committed to protecting national security through a public-private partnership that features the U.S. merchant marine.
