BlueGreen Alliance Applauds Strong Buy America Provision in Senate WRDA Bill
The Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee today marked up two bills, the America's Water Infrastructure Act of 2020 and the Drinking Water Infrastructure Act of 2020. Included in the bills is language making permanent Buy America for the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF).
In response to today’s markup the BlueGreen Alliance released the following statement from Executive Director Jason Walsh:
“Every American deserves to have access to clean water. We applaud this action to address our nation’s water infrastructure challenges. We are particularly pleased with the inclusion of a permanent Buy America provision, which has a long-standing history of boosting American manufacturing, creating quality, family-sustaining jobs, and maximizing investments in the American economy.”
