Maritime Matters In Washington
by Mr. Paul Bea
At the risk o devaluing these reports, not to mentionthe title o this segment, sometimes one wonderswhether maritime matters in Washington. But then Icould say that o more than just the marine portolioo government. The state o ederal inrastructureand transportation policy is as shaky as some o thethousands o bridges that await repair in the US.A senior member o the transportation committeewho knows how Congress can be productiveexpressed his great disappointment to a gathering o people this morning about how little is getting done.This congressman who also plays a lead role onmaritime issues oered little reason or optimism thatthings will change anytime soon. When asked aboutthe FAA bill, which is important to him and his district,he acknowledged that maybe—just maybe—that billhas a chance o getting approved this year.Why? Recall the August dust-up over FAAlegislation. Congress recessed allowing theauthority or aviation program spending to expire.FAA personnel were laid o except olks who areessential to keeping planes fying. Around the countryairport projects stopped. Ater a couple weeks o headlines, head scratching, name calling and choicewords the powers-that-be agreed to another shortterm extension o the aviation programs or thetwenty-second time. Yes, you read that right. Theywere buying more time…again. For our years theHouse and Senate transportation committees (andparty leadership) have not been able to resolve amanageable number o bill dierences.

So why does the congressman think thereis a chance this multi-billion dollar bill will nallyget done? Because people were shocked at howbad things actually got. They couldn’t believe thatprograms were allowed to shut down and thousandso public and private sector workers were laid o in atime o high unemployment.He said, in eect, that maybe…nally…theinability o government to govern reached the pointthat Congress really embarrassed itsel. They can’taord to let this FAA bill be extended or twenty-threeor twenty-ve times.What does this have to do with maritimematters? Other transportation bills are waiting inthe wings. The surace transportation law (SAFETEA-LU) expired in September 2009. New projectunding and a reight policy are among the mattersneeding attention. Congress has yet to take up awater resources bill (WRDA) and a solution to theHarbor Maintenance Trust Fund has been too long incoming. Other measures to set inrastructure policyand unding have languished. States, cities andports are unable to engage in project implementationwithout the assurance o unding. Navigationprojects take years to bring to ruition. But then youknow that.I it takes more major embarrassments let’s hopethey get it out o their system sooner than later.
