Paper: Pass RAMP Act

The American Press, an “e-paper,” advocates immediate passage of the RAMP Act.

“Spend $110 million this year or lose $9.2 billion worth of cargo. That’s a choice the nation faces as a result of the silt build-up in Louisiana’s Mississippi River… if Mississippi River dredging was funded at the level officials say is needed, the return on that investment would be 8,363 percent. How can you argue that investment isn’t worth making?”
