Major Water Infrastructure Bill Passes House

On June 6, the House overwhelmingly passed (408-2) the 2018 Water Resources Development Act (WRDA).  WRDA authorizes billions in funding for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Civil Works projects, including navigation (dredging, locks), flood control (levees), hydropower (dams), recreation (parks), and water supply. AGC is committed to working with Congress to strengthen the legislation to include the Securing Required Funding for Water Infrastructure Now Act and the reauthorization of the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act. The Senate is expected to vote on its version of WRDA in the coming weeks.
AGC is following both bills closely and advocating for AGC priorities in both the Senate and House WRDA bills. AGC testified before the committee earlier this year. You can read AGC’s list of recommendations here.
