A new bill in favor of the Delta Queen is on its way!

May 15, 2013

Congressman Steve Chabot of Ohio has introduced a new bill to save the Delta Queen – that is, granting her a new exemption fom the Safety at Sea Act, bill no. H.R.1961. Co-Sponsors of the bill are, so far: Representatives Wm. Lacy Clay (MO-1), Thomas Massie (KY-4) and Brad R. Wenstrup (OH-2).

Now is the moment where the efforts of the whole steamboater’s community need to be combined, supporting this bill, H.R. 1961.

Please support the efforts to save the Delta Queen and bring her back on the rivers:

Contact your Congressmen now and urge them to support the bill. We need their help, so please be polite, but let them know how important it is for you and your community to bring the Delta Queen back on the rivers as a operating cruise vessel.

– If you know a Representative willing to co-sponsor the bill or if you know a Senator willing to sponsor the bill in the Senate, please contact Rep. Steve Chabot’s office in Washington, phone (202) 225-2216. The more support the bill gets, the better the chances to get it through Congress.
