Governor Tom Wolf and U.S. Senator Bob Casey visited the Port of Philadelphia to celebrate a $20.3 million federal grant to construct a new 100,000 square-foot warehouse at Tioga Marine Terminal. "The port is an economic powerhouse not just for the Philadelphia region, but for all of Pennsylvania," said Gov. Wolf. "This is a major hub for global trade, and a crucial link in the supply chain for the goods that Pennsylvanians use every single day. "An investment in a stronger port is an investment in better infrastructure, a stronger economy, and long-term stability for Pennsylvania. This is why it's so important for us to have leaders in Congress like Senator Casey, who are willing to fight for Pennsylvania jobs and Pennsylvania infrastructure. "It's also why I'm so proud that my administration has invested more than $539 million in the Port of Philadelphia."Speakers Include:Jerry Sweeney - Board Chairman, PhilaPortSenator Bob CaseyGovernor Tom WolfBoise Butler - President, ILA Local 1291Andrew Sentyz - President, Delaware River Stevedores, Inc.
