MAFC Program Administrator, Ernest Perry, PhD, testified last week to members of the Assembly Transportation Committee for the State of Wisconsin in support of continued funding for the Harbor Assistance Program (HAP). In his statement, Perry emphasized a multiagency effort that has been taking place for over three years to to increase the freight and economic activity at Wisconsin ports. Wisconsin ports are responsible for the health of a large part of the state’s economy and will have an increasingly important role in the future. The support provided by HAP funds has been significant in providing tangible benefits to the state’s port infrastructure and will continue to be a much needed asset to ensure the sustainability of this important system moving forward.
