Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) announced today that he has introduced the Protecting Orderly and Responsible Transit of Shipments (PORTS) Act in the United States Senate to safeguard the American economy from the threat of labor shutdowns and slowdowns at seaports.

The Act, which is cosponsored by Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), would discourage disruptions at US seaports and incentivize speedy resolution of disputes by strengthening and expanding the well-known Taft Hartley process, which is already applicable to ports and includes 70 years of case law.
