Sen. Begich Thanks The Icebreaker Healy
U.S. Sen. Mark Begich thanked the crews of the U.S. Coast Guard Icebreaker Healy and the M/V Renda for their successful delivery of fuel and heating oil to Nome, Alaska, on the Senate floor today.
He also addresses our nation's need to develop our Arctic infrastructure, invest in additional icebreakers and keep America from falling behind other Arctic nations amid their efforts to develop the Arctic. Furthermore, he touches upon the need for a robust science program and accurate weather reporting by NOAA and state-of-the-art tracking satellites.
