Officials Testify Tiberi Bill Would Create Jobs

Statement

U.S. Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH), Chairman of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Select Revenue Measures, today released the following statement after a joint hearing with the Subcommittee on Oversight on the Harbor Maintenance Tax and his Short Sea Shipping bill:

"As we heard today, a disincentive currently exists for companies that ship goods by water between U.S. cities. In fact, we heard ports in the Great Lakes are at 50-60 percent operating capacity. As our infrastructure needs become greater, creating a narrow Harbor Maintenance Tax exemption would encourage American companies to use short sea shipping when other means of transporting goods are available. Passing my Short Sea Shipping bill would not only ease stress on our current infrastructure, it would create jobs and improve the flow of commerce in the United States."
