(Full funding recommended for the Calexico Downtown Port)…That is the recommendation of a House Financial Services Committee.
The Committee recommended full funding for the proposed land ports in 2015. They include the Calexico project, the San Ysidro Port and a Port of Entry in New York. The committee said despite limited resources, the proposed port projects represent critical infrastructure investment in strengthening trade, commerce and border security. District one County Supervisor John Renison, a major backer of the Calexico project says the Committee recommendation is great news. He said it would indicate the funding is finally forthcoming. He said now it is a question of when. Renison said the concern now is to get the proposal to the floor before the legislators in Washington take their summer break.
