Trump Signs Law for Delta Queen to Sail Again

December 12, 2018 by Erica Stewart

Success! The decade-long legislative effort to help return the Delta Queen to America's waterways culminated on December 4 when President Donald Trump signed into law a measure that renews the vessel's exemption from the 1966 Safety at Sea Act.

The act enables the Delta Queen to return to overnight cruise service through 2028 after repairs to the 91-year-old steamboat are complete.

The National Trust's African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund has awarded $3 million in grants to 33 places preserving Black history.
