New Congressional Maritime Caucus Created

New Congressional Maritime Caucus Created

On February 7, 2013, Congressmen Cedric Richmond (D-LA) and Michael Grimm (R-NY) announced the formation of a Congressional Maritime Caucus.  The caucus will give every member of Congress an opportunity to better understand the crucial role that the U.S.-flag maritime industry and its workforce of ‘maritime Americans’ play in strengthening our nation’s economic, military and homeland security.cedric-richmond-maritime-caucus-klaus-luhta

Richmond, a Democrat who represents Louisiana’s 2nd District, and Grimm, a Republican who represents New York’s 11th District, say the primary purpose of the new Maritime Caucus will be to help educate members of Congress about a broad range of maritime-related topics. “The maritime industry is the unsung hero of our nation’s economy,” Richmond says.

“The operation of U.S.-flag vessels with American crews strengthens the domestic economy,” says Don Marcus, President of the International Organization of Masters, Mates, & Pilots. “It keeps thousands of Americans employed, generates tax revenues for our government and contributes to our nation’s economic recovery.”

“Without a strong peacetime U.S.-flag merchant marine, America’s troops overseas will not have the American vessels and Americamichael-grimm-maritime-caucus-klaus-luhtan crews necessary to deliver the supplies they need to protect the interests of our country,” Marcus says. “The men and women of the U.S. merchant marine are on the front lines every day. The Congressional Maritime Caucus will help increase awareness of the essential job they do.”

The Congressional Maritime Caucus is a new concept and one that is welcomed by the American maritime industry as a whole.  Increasing maritime awareness in Congress will go far in maintaining and growing the American fleet of merchant ships.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter
    to be actually something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking
    forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, but I by no means
    discovered any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty value enough for me.
    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content
    as you probably did, the internet will probably be much more useful than ever before.

    Howdy! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Cheers!

    Link exchange is nothing else but it is only placing the other person’s web site
    link on your page at appropriate place and other person will also do same in support of you.

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you need to publish more about this subject, it may not be a taboo matter
    but typically people don’t speak about these issues. To the next!
    Many thanks!!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
