Water Resources and Infrastructure Bill Heads to White House

Last week the Senate (78–21) and the House of Representatives (360–61) voted overwhelmingly to pass the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act. Thanks to those of you who wrote to your members of Congress, urging them to support passing this important legislation.
The WIIN Act includes provisions from the House and Senate Water Resource Development Act (WRDA) bills, which passed in September and authorizes the Army Corps of Engineers Chief's Reports submitted to Congress since WRDA 2014. The WIIN Act also includes the Water and Waste Act of 2016, which makes changes to the Safe Drinking Water Act and Solid Waste Disposal Act. WIIN also authorizes the EPA-approved state coal ash disposal programs.
AGC will continue to monitor the progress of the WIIN Act as it heads to the president's desk to be signed into law.
