This is the April 24, 2018 hearing titled "Maritime Transportation: Opportunities and Challenges," held before the Senate Subcommittee on Surface Transportation and Merchant Marine Infrastructure, Safety and Security of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. From the opening statement of Deb Fischer: "Thank you all for being here today for this Surface Transportation and Merchant Marine Infrastructure, Safety, and Security Subcommittee hearing titled 'Maritime Transportation: Opportunities and Challenges.' Maritime transportation and the Merchant Marine are essential to the United States for both commercial and defense purposes. The United States Bureau of Transportation statistics found that in 2016, the value of exports and imports shipped by water was worth nearly $1.5 trillion. As the world becomes more connected through trade, even a triple landlocked state like Nebraska relies on maritime transportation and the Merchant Marine to get our products to their final destination." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael A. Khouri, Mark H. Buzby, James Helis, and Craig H. Middlebrook.
