U.S. Senator Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) on Wednesday praised passage of the “Water Resources Development Act of 2013” by the U.S. Senate.
The bill, which passed by a vote of 83-14, supports the development of water-related resources and authorizes the Secretary of the Army to construct projects for improving U.S. rivers and harbors.
Senator Wicker championed provisions to support needed maintenance dredging at the Port of Gulfport, and smaller Mississippi River ports in Rosedale, Greenville, Vicksburg, Yazoo, as well as Claiborne.
