HOUSE PASSES SMALL SHIPYARD GRANT AMENDMENT

A budget amendment to increase funding for the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration Small Shipyard Grant Program passed the House Wednesday. Northeastern Wisconsin Congressman Mike Gallagher was an original co-sponsor of the amendment. The program awards federal grants to small shipyards across the country to repair and modernize equipment, increase efficiencies and productivity, and compete in the global marketplace. Gallagher said the Small Shipyard Grant program is making sure our local shipyards are able to invest in modern equipment and a high-skilled workforce that supports thousands of good-paying jobs in Northeast Wisconsin.
