WASHINGTON, D.C - Sen. Rand Paul today issued the following statement after the Army Corps of Engineers announced funding for the Hickman River Port in Kentucky.
"Since last year, I have adamantly pushed for measures that would benefit smaller harbors facing shut-downs, including the Harbor Equity Act I introduced in the Senate. I am proud the Army Corps of Engineers will allocate funding that will keep open the Hickman River Port in Western Kentucky.
