Biden Administration Unveils U.S. Ports and Waterways Action Plan

H.R. 3684, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, on Nov. 5 passed the House by a vote of 228 to 206. The measure had already passed the Senate and now awaits President Biden’s signature. Passage of the bill is good news for ports, waterways and offshore wind, providing $17.4 billion in funding for waterway and coastal infrastructure, inland waterway improvements and port infrastructure, which will benefit rail-served facilities.
