Hearings will be held this July 9th before the House Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee, and Mr. Elijah Cummings will be in attendance. The committee should pay heed to all the comments but give a particularly critical listen to Captain Richard Block’s comments and concerns as he champions the working mariner.
I have a deep desire to see Captain Richard Block succeed in conveying the necessary urgency to Congress on the 9th and see some real progress. It just seems that with all he is suggesting, there wouldn’t appear to be a glimmer of hope that anything concrete will be accomplished for years…..the pile of sh…. er, EGO that needs to be navigated has run lesser men aground, good luck Capt. Block.
