CRS Reports – Week of 3-23-24 – Key Bridge Collapse

This week the Congressional Research Service (CRS) published a report on “Baltimore Bridge Collapse: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)”. The report provides a brief factual look at the circumstances that surround the incident and its aftermath, but it does not directly address issues related to the cause of the accident.

The FAQ questions addressed include:

Who Owns and Controls the Ship?

How Do Ships Navigate Through Harbors?

How Will Port Traffic Be Affected?

How Will Road Traffic Be Affected?

Has Anything Like This Happened Before?

What Immediate Actions Can the Federal Government Take?

What Is the Federal Government’s Role in Rebuilding the Bridge?

Interestingly, there is no ‘Issues for Congress’ section in this report.
