What Your Federal Delegation Can Do for You

Port of Baltimore

The recent spending bill passed by Congress included funding for several infrastructure projects in Maryland.  As described in our posts, Congressional Spending Bill Includes $70.3 Million For Maryland Waterway Projects, and Congress Passes $1.1T Spending Bill, Avoids Shutdown, Congress’s spending bill included $100 million for the Red Line, $63 million for the port of Baltimore and $1.5 billion over a decade to update Metro’s infrastructure.  According to coverage in the Baltimore Sun,

The bill’s passage marked a political victory for Senate Appropriations Committee chairwoman Barbara A. Mikulski, a Maryland Democrat and a chief architect of the measure. Mikulski and Democratic leaders managed to move the bill through Congress despite deep concerns voiced by members of both parties. . .

And as reported by the Delmarva Now,

U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, has announced the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2015 includes $70.3 million for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers projects in Maryland.
