Support the Jones Act
The Jones Act is the law which requires that any cargo transported between two points in the U.S. by water move on American vessels crewed by American workers. It is fundamental to the domestic maritime industry. The Jones Act helps support nearly 650,000 jobs across America, including yours and mine. More importantly to the nation as a whole, the law provides important national, homeland, and economic security benefits. We all should be proud of the contributions we make to our nation under the Jones Act.  For more information about the Jones Act, see https://www.americanmaritimepartnership.com/. 

As part of a national campaign in support of the Jones Act, I am asking you to take a minute this week to contact your Members of Congress and let them know you support the Jones Act. You can either send a pre-formatted message or edit the message as you wish. We encourage you to personalize and tell Congress why your job matters to you, and what would happen to you, your family, and your job if the Jones Act goes away. Your personal story, even just a sentence, will make the letter more effective. 
 
Thank you for your support for the Jones Act. If you have others in your family or others who you know who care about the Jones Act, please share this link and ask them to sign up.
