Port Houston and industry stakeholders meeting with U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady.
Port Houston executives and Targa Resources welcomed U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s staff at the Bayport Container Terminal Aug.19.
The officials highlighted the importance of the Houston Ship Channel Expansion Project to the nation and the value of the channel and the industry and jobs that it supports.
Just days later on Aug. 27, Port Houston’s Executive Director Roger Guenther and channel industry partners briefed U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady on the project. The waterway’s importance to the nation’s economy was the key focus of the meeting.
Port Houston and industry stakeholders are working together to address the challenges with the current channel, as well as meeting the industry needs for future improvements.
The Port of Houston is an asset to the state and national economies. Widening the nation's busiest waterway to allow for improved two-way traffic should lead to safer and more efficient economic growth.
