This is the January 19, 2022 hearing on "Assessing the State of America's Seaports." held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Border Security, Facilitation, and Operations of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Nanette Diaz Barragan: "The purpose of today's hearing is to assess the state of our Nation's seaports. Seaports are critical to the movement of commerce and thus critical enablers of the U.S. economy, especially as the country continues its fight against the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. As the Chairwoman of the Border Security, Facilitation, and Operations Subcommittee and the Member representing the Port of Los Angeles, the largest container port in the Nation, I understand how important it is that our seaports have the resources they need in order to support the safe and timely processing of trade and travel. [...] I look forward to hearing from our witnesses today on what assistance Congress and my subcommittee can offer to better support and resource ports. I am also interested in hearing any recommendations from our witnesses on changes that need to happen to CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Protection]'s public-private partnership program." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Christopher J. Connor, Anthony M. Reardon, Eugene D. Seroka, Cathie J. Vick, and Richert L. Self.
