Calling on the Army Corps of Engineers to Keep $2 Million in San Diego

Statement

Location: Unknown

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers came in $2 million under budget after dredging the San Diego Harbor. I called on the Army Corps of Engineers to keep that money in San Diego, instead of diverting it elsewhere.

I'm glad the Army Corps of Engineers was able to get a good deal to dredge our harbor, now they need to spend the excess funds to reduce the backlog of important projects here in San Diego. We have a number of projects those funds could go towards, like our important Tijuana River projects.

I sponsored the original dredging authorization in the House of Representatives to allow the funds to be spent for the San Diego Harbor dredging project. I have formally requested the funds stay in San Diego instead of being diverted to the Ventura Harbor.
