Wisconsin Corn Growers applaud Senator Baldwin, members of Congressional Delegation

The Wisconsin Corn Growers Association applauds Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D) and the members of the Wisconsin congressional delegation who voted last month to pass the Water Resources Reform and Development Act. The WRRDA was signed into law by President Barack Obama on June 10.

H.R.3080, which greatly improves the efficiency and reliability of the U.S. inland waterways system, passed the Senate on May 22 with a 91-7 vote, with Senator Baldwin voting in favor. The bill passed the House two days earlier with a 417-3 vote. Wisconsin was well represented with yea votes from Reps. Paul Ryan (R-1st), Mark Pocan (D-2nd), Ron Kind (D-3rd), Gwen Moore (D-4th), Tom Petri (R-6th), Sean Duffy (R-7th) and Reid Ribble (R-8th).

"We want to thank Senator Baldwin and the members of Wisconsin's congressional delegation who voted in favor of this important piece of legislation," said WCGA President Brian Long. "Ports in the Great Lakes and the lock and dam system of the Mississippi allow Wisconsin farmers to sell their products throughout the U.S. and abroad. The ports, as well as the locks and dams, have needed attention for some time now. This is an investment that will benefit all of Wisconsin."

Martin Barbre, president of the National Corn Growers Association also released a statement on the bill becoming law. "This legislation provides an important step toward the infrastructure improvements vital to our nation's inland waterway system," said Martin Barbre, National Corn Growers Association president. "Our locks and dams transport our cargoes today, but were built in the 1920s and 1930s to accommodate far smaller loads and far less river traffic. For farmers in particular, this is crucial, as more than 60 percent of the nation's grain exports are transported by barge. The need is urgent; U.S. farmers and businesses rely upon this transportation channel to create economic opportunities at home and supply markets abroad."

The Wisconsin Corn Growers Association represents the interests of Wisconsin's corn growers on federal, state, and local issues.
