Wicker applauds Coast Guard reauthorization legislation

The Senate’s passage on Friday of a measure that would reauthorize and support the Coast Guard was lauded by U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS).

Wicker, a member of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, authored several of the provisions in the legislation, H.R. 4188, that focus on increasing grant opportunities for the Coast Guard Academy, updating carriage requirements for vessel survival crafts and improving the certification process for fishing vessels.
