    Congress must allow continued exemptions for the Delta Queen Steamboat that plys inland rivers and waterways. The Majestic America Company is prepared to continue regular cruises with this historic vessel. They have the funds to continue the necessary maintenance for safe passage of the DQ steamboat and its passengers. It is my understanding that the DQ is in exceptional condition to continue sailing and that her fire prevention abilities are of the finest that can be had.

    The wooden hulled 1776 Constitution still floats with her wooden hull and steam railway locomotives still operated on tourist lines with engines that predate the 1926 DQ.

    A continued exemption for the DQ is a reasonable request and should be issued for her continued service.
