From Tim Runyan of the Maritime Alliance:
Attached is an Op Ed article: “Fleecing Maritime Schools and Heritage Organizations” from Maritime Executive written by Denise Krepp. It addresses ship recycling at the Maritime Administration, including its relevance to maritime heritage funding. Very lively!
Work continues on achieving full funding for the maritime heritage grants program. I have made two visits to Capitol Hill in the past two months to meet with House and Senate staff members as we develop strategies and allies in our effort.
