NSSGA sees WRRDA’s passage as positive for infrastructural needs

By |  October 25, 2013

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Water Resources Reform & Development Act of 2013 (WRRDA) in a 417 to 3 vote – a move NSSGA applauded. According to NSSGA, WRRDA is aimed at strengthening the nation’s water transportation network.

“[The] vote, especially when considered in light of the strong bipartisan support that companion legislation received in the Senate, shows that Congress can come together on important matters of national interest and advance meaningful policy solutions,” says Mike Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO, in a letter to the association’s members. “This is a promising development given the need for Congress to address crucial infrastructure issues surrounding the expiration of the current highway bill and the solvency of the highway trust fund in the very near future.”
