Harbor maintenance tax reform measure approved

Secretary of State Kim Wyman has signed SB 8008, which would encourage Congress to reform the harbor maintenance tax to no longer negatively affect U.S. port competitiveness. Ports like the ports of Seattle and Tacoma enforce the tax on shippers but receive little to no benefit as they require minimal dredging work. Copies of the measure will now be sent to U.S. President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and every member of Congress.
