Civil Works Support
At the request of C-MANC, Chairman Don
Young sent a letter to the President to draw attention to the
value of the civil works program of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
C-MANC encourages the State
of California's support of our navigation infrastructure. California
has the 5th largest economy in the World, it is the largest
exporting state in the largest exporting nation in the World.
This is due, in no small part, to the activities of California's
ports and harbors.
The ports and harbors in California
are spending over one billion dollars a year to upgrade their
facilities to accommodate the international trade that flows
through California. The federal government is spending tens
of millions of dollars to maintain and upgrade the navigation
channels in California. The State of California has not participated
in this effort.
The State of California is involved
in cost sharing other civil works projects with the federal
government, including beach enhancement and flood control. Where
is the State in this crucial transportation link that allows
farmers and manufacturers to export their products and retailers
to import their products? Over 5% of the Gross State Product
is directly attributed to the efforts of California's ports
