Great Lakes navigation system passes in U.S. House

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- The U.S. House overwhelmingly passed the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2013.

Included in the Act is Congresswoman Candice Miller's provision designating all ports and harbors on the Great Lakes as a single, comprehensive navigation system for budgeting purposes.  Essentially, it allows the Great Lakes ports to create a unified front when it comes to federal funding.

"While other waterway channels and ports in our nation have access to funding, our Great Lakes waterways have faced decades of inadequate funding for dredging and infrastructure maintenance," says Miller, "and it is long past time for that practice to change."
