Rep. Peters on House Passage of Bill to Support Coast Guard and Prioritize San Diego Sector
March 30, 2022
Today, Rep. Scott Peters (CA-52) released a statement following the House passage of the Don Young Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2022:
“San Diego’s strength relies on the readiness of its defense communities. The Don Young Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2022 will ensure the Coast Guard can count on the necessary resources to keep our coastal communities safe, maintain the security of our ports and waterways, carry out critical missions, and respond to emergencies and disasters.
“To fully advocate for the needs of the San Diego sector, I fought to include a section that requires the Coast Guard to submit a comprehensive assessment of the needs of the Coast Guard sector San Diego to Congress. I thank my colleagues for their bipartisan support of this bill.”
