WLOX Editorial: Maintaining navigable waterways is important

An appropriations measure important to Mississippi is making its way through Congress. The Energy and Water Development bill would assure funding for Army Corps of Engineers for Mississippi river dredging and waterway management and flood control across the nation. 

Maintaining navigable waterways is important to American export capabilities. Harbor maintenance and other infrastructure projects add to the effort to ensure public safety and increase commerce to help the United States remain competitive in the world of international commerce.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
