Waterways Infrastructure

Issue Background

Our nation’s waterways keep America moving, provide American jobs, and support exports.

Farm Bureau supports having an efficient and reliable inland waterway system and ports to provide affordable agricultural products domestically and to compete internationally.

U.S. ports and inland waterways are vital to the shipment of agricultural products as more than 2 billion tons of domestic and import/export cargo move through our ports and along our waters.

Modern lock and dam infrastructure is critical to U.S. competitiveness in the world market, to environmental protection, to energy efficiency, to the sustainment of well-paying American jobs and to congestion relief.
