House of Representatives has approved a bill that calls for widening and deepening the Sabine Neches Waterway
KFDM News - It's a major step in expanding a waterway that carries with it a large part of the Southeast Texas economy.
The House of Representatives has approved a bill that calls for widening and deepening the Sabine Neches Waterway.
Ships carry billions of dollars in petrochemical products and other cargo though the waterway from Sabine pass to Port Arthur and on to Beaumont.
Supporters say expanding the waterway would allow newer, larger tankers and ships to continue traveling along the channel and help boost the economy.
Once House and Senate work out differences in the bill, they will send it to the president.
