Congress Approves Infrastructure Bill/White House Takes Action

In the early hours of Nov. 6, Congress approved the bipartisan infrastructure package, which President Biden is expected to sign shortly. In response, on Nov. 9, President Biden announced immediate actions to provide critical funding to address underlying port infrastructure issues contributing to the shipping crisis. While TGA applauds both actions, which are necessary to prevent future shipping crises, neither action does anything to address today’s shipping crisis. TGA will continue to reiterate that to President Biden and Congress and urge them to act now on today’s crisis.
