This is the May 29, 2020 hearing on "The Status of the U.S. Maritime Supply Chain During the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Pandemic," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. From the opening statement of Sean Patrick Maloney: "In a typical year, over $4.6 trillion worth of commerce flows through a maritime transportation system that is rapidly becoming more complex and interconnected. Unprecedented safety measures and a recent decrease in cargo, some of which began before the onset of the pandemic, will challenge the industry for months and years to come. My hope is that this hearing will help the committee better understand the difficulties facing the maritime industry and identify areas of support that may be needed to ensure the seamless movement of cargo and protect the associated maritime jobs." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Christopher J. Connor, Michael G. Roberts, Jennifer A. Carpenter, Lauren K. Brand, and Eric P. Ebeling.
