Posted: 5/9/2014 | Views: 253

Key lawmakers have said they finally reached a deal on the $8.2 billion Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA).

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA), Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Senator David Vitter (R-LA), EPW Committee Ranking Member, and Rep. Nick Rahall (D-WV), Transportation Committee Ranking Member, issued the following statement on the evening of May 8.

 “We are proud to deliver what the American public wants and needs. This conference report maintains ports and navigation routes for commerce and the movement of goods, provides flood control that protects lives and property, and restores vital ecosystems to preserve our natural heritage. This important measure will strengthen our Nation's infrastructure and keep America competitive in the global marketplace.”

The committee leaders said the necessary paperwork will be finalized and that additional details will be released when the WRRDA Conference Report is filed. NAEDA has been a long-time supporter of getting this legislation passed and sent to the president.
