This is the July 21, 2021 hearing on the "Review of Fiscal Year 2022 Budget for the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Programs," held before the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation of the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. From the opening statement of Salud O. Carbajal: "Good morning, and welcome to today's hearing on the review of the fiscal year 2022 budget request for the Coast Guard and maritime transportation programs. Today, we will hear directly from the Commandant and the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard, the Chairman of the Federal Maritime Commission, and the Acting Administrator of the Maritime Administration [MARAD] on the President's budget request and agency priorities. [...] On marine transportation, I look forward to MARAD's plan to revitalize every facet of the U.S. maritime industry, from our ports to the continually declining U.S.-flag fleet and the associated American merchant mariners. I would like to hear more about how the Port Infrastructure Development Program can help address and prepare for climate change. [...] I am disappointed that the administration's national maritime strategy remains incomplete. While mandated by legislation in 2014, MARAD has yet to develop an implementation plan or report on regulations that impact the competitiveness of the industry." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Karl L. Schultz, Daniel B. Maffei, Jason M. Vanderhaden, and Lucinda Lessley.
