U.S. DOT names new members to marine advisory committee

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced the appointment of 29 new members to the Marine Transportation System National Advisory Committee.

   The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) on Tuesday announced the appointment of 29 new members to the Marine Transportation System National Advisory Committee (MTSNAC).
   Established in 2010, the MTSNAC is comprised of leaders from commercial transportation firms, ship construction, repair and recycling, trade associations, state and local public entities, labor organizations, academics and environmental groups that advise the DOT secretary and the Maritime Administration on policies to ensure that the U.S. marine  transportation system is capable of responding to projected trade increases.
   The advisory committee provides advice on issues such as implementing short sea transportation. MTSNAC policy recommendations were helpful in getting Congress and DOT to include maritime infrastructure in surface transportation policy and the improvement and streamlining of the Title XI ship financing process.
   Eleven MTSNAC members remain from the last term. Committee members serve two-terms, with no more than two consecutive term re-appointments, and approximately one-third of members’ terms of office expire every two years.
