Rep. Cummings Receives Maritime Service Award
On Wednesday, October 29, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) delivered keynote remarks at APL Maritime’s Senior Management Conference, and received an award recognizing his service to the maritime industry.
“The U.S. flagged oceangoing fleet is vital to our nation’s security, as is ensuring the future of that fleet both through federal policy and support for the next generation of maritime workers,” Cummings said. “I’m honored to be recognized by APL Maritime, and I look forward to working with them and other stakeholders to sustain and strengthen the U.S. maritime industry.”
Cummings was honored for his continued support of the U.S. flagged fleet, especially during his tenure as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
