A spin-off of the Chamber's delegation for Washington-to-Washington, D.C. 2010, visited with Alaska's lone representation in the House, Congressman Don Young.
Chief among issues discussed was the EPA's implementation of air emissions regs for ships at sea but within the 200-mile territorial limit of the U.S. Both Totem Ocean Trailer Express and Horizon Lines are directly impacted by this regulation. Alaska remains one of our chief trading partners through the services of these carriers through the Port of Tacoma.
Attending the meeting with Cong. Young are: (l to r): Gary Brackett, Chamber; John Parrott, TOTE; Stephanie Bowman, Port of Tacoma; Cong. Young; Spiro Manthou, Tacoma City Council; Gary Coy, Sperry Ocean.
