Bipartisan Senators request funding for 2022 Small Shipyard Grants
Led by perennial shipyard champions Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA), a strong showing of U.S. Senators requested funds to continue the Small Shipyard Grant program. With support of having been included in the President's budget, Congress is now working to develop the FY2022 budget through hearings and bill mark-ups starting the week of July 12. Some Members already on the Senate Appropriations Committee indicated they will support the grant program in their own communications with the Committee leaders, but don't sign these kinds of letters. Read the Baldwin-Cassidy letter here to see whether your Senator signed.
