Newsom, Buttigieg announce $5 billion in loans to fix California's clogged ports

In partnership with the California State Transportation Agency, through an Emerging Projects Agreement, we will improve the capacity and resiliency of the supply chain.

This innovative federal-state partnership will:

✅ Build a stronger supply chain that grows the economy by exporting and importing more goods.

✅ Serve as a model for other states who wish to build a comprehensive program of public and public-private projects.

A $5-billion infusion of federal and state loan money won't fix the current crisis at SoCal's crucial ports but could help them in the future
