PRESS RELEASE | U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) today released this statement on the introduction of H.R. 5688, the Navigation Workers Protection Act, a bill to clarify that operations and maintenance work at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers navigation projects are inherently governmental work. Davis and U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) introduced this bipartisan bill earlier this week. Davis and Bustos serve together on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

The locks and dams along our waterways are critical to our economy and getting corn, soybeans, and other ag products our farmers produce to market and we must ensure they remain a priority. Our Founding Fathers understood the important role our government should play in our nation’s infrastructure and this bill continues to protect this important role of managing our locks and dams and commerce along our waterways. I’m proud to join Representative Cheri Bustos in introducing this bipartisan bill that has the support of business and labor groups alike and I look forward to working together to move this important legislation forward.”
