Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi announced today that the House Appropriations Committee has approved key projects that promise a better environmental and economic future for San Francisco Bay. "These projects," said the San Francisco Democrat, "represent an important investment in the commercial potential of San Francisco Bay."

This appropriation funds general maintenance of the Bay's shipping channels.

San Francisco Bay Rock Removal $800,000

This study reviews removal of obstacles to navigation in San Francisco Bay.
