UNDATED (WHTC) -- A nearly unanimous vote by the U.S. House of Representatives occurred on Tuesday that will maintain and modernize the country’s water transportation infrastructure.  Congressman Fred Upton said quote, “I am very pleased that, after months of negotiations, the House and senate were able to reach a bipartisan agreement to ensure our harbors and waterways remain open and operational.”  The bill also includes language authored, in part, by Bill Huizenga and cosponsored by Upton that designates the entire Great Lakes Navigation System as a single, unified system for budgetary purposes.
