Sen. Cruz Introduces Trifecta of Commerce-Related Bills
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) introduced three pieces of legislation that will improve marine highway transportation, extend the life of the International Space Station through 2030, and ensure commercial service airports that meet certain criteria receive fair treatment from Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) with regards to providing agents to staff those airports.
About these three bills, Sen. Cruz said:
“Each of these bills is imperative to maintain and bolster the functionality of their respective programs: MARAD and the marine highway system, our national space program, and Customs and Border Patrol operations at certain commercial service airports. I am proud to lead the charge to ensure there is reimbursement fairness among all border airports, to extend the authorization of the ISS so that we can fully utilize this $100 billion capability, and to improve our national marine highway transportation system.”
