Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement after the House passed the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA):

“I am grateful to support the Water Resources Development Act, and was pleased that it passed the House today. This bill includes critical funding for deepening the Port of Charleston. By expanding the port’s ability to accommodate larger vessels, we are supporting the more than 187,000 jobs related to the port.
