Maloney Statement on the 230th Birthday of the United States Coast Guard

 

Newburgh, NY Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18), Chair of the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, released the following statement in celebration of the United States Coast Guard’s 230th birthday:

 

“From protecting our ports, waterways and coasts, to performing lifesaving search and rescue mission and interdicting drugs, the United States Coast Guard works day and night to keep our Nation safe from harm. It is my honor to fight for this critical branch of our Armed Forces in Congress as Chair of the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee.

 

“Today, on the Coast Guard’s 230th Birthday, I thank the brave men and women of our Coast Guard for their service to our country, and honor our veterans and generations of Coasties-past who have valiantly protected our seas and coastal communities, advancing the Coast Guard’s mission and ensuring our Nation's maritime safety, security and stewardship,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney.

 

The Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has jurisdiction over a wide array of issue areas ranging from the oversight and support of the Coast Guard – to the regulation of shipping, ports and waterways, and environmental protection.

 

The Coast Guard was established by an act of Congress in 1790, and was originally named the Revenue Cutter Service. It was merged with the U.S. Life-Saving Service in 1915, and was renamed the United States Coast Guard.
