NSSGA encourages House to pass water resources reform bill

By |  October 22, 2013

NSSGA urged members of the U.S. House of Representative in an Oct. 21 letter to support the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2013 (WRRDA) and to vote for passage.

According to NSSGA, it reminds congressional leaders in the letter that its members supply materials that are essential ingredients in the construction and maintenance of dams, water and sewage treatment plants, tunnels and other public works projects. NSSGA also expressed hope in the letter that Congress will return to a biannual process for approving water resources development legislation and fully fund water infrastructure projects through the Energy & Water Appropriations bill – and not allow projects to be halted or slowed due to inadequate funding.

A copy of NSSGA’s letter is available at www.nssga.org.
