The U.S. House of Representatives today passed the reauthorization of the Water Resources Development Act. The bill includes substantial funding for and support of natural infrastructure solutions for climate resiliency as well as affordability provisions for vulnerable communities.
In response to the passage of the bill the BlueGreen Alliance released the following statement from Executive Director Jason Walsh:
“The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a harsh light on just how important it is that we ensure every American can rely on access to clean, safe water. We applaud passage of the House’s reauthorization of the Water Resources Development Act and urge them to work with the Senate to pass a final bill that includes important measures such as the reauthorization of the Clean Water State Revolving Loan fund, Safe Drinking Water Act programs, and a permanent Buy America provision to ensure the investments we make create good-paying jobs here in the United States.”
