Water Resources Bill to Provide Safety for Louisianians, Senator Says (USA)

U.S. Senator David Vitter, who is the lead Senate Republican negotiator for the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), announced that a deal is done.

The legislation has been getting worked out in a conference committee made up of top Senate and House members, and may be voted on in the Senate and House as early as next week.

This is a major hurricane and flood protection bill that will provide safety for Louisianians,” Vitter said. “It’s easily one of the most important bills for Louisiana we’ll pass this year. We have the opportunity to reform the Corps of Engineers, streamline flood protection projects, finally get Morganza moving, and improve our waterways and infrastructure all in one bill. This is a huge benefit to the entire nation that is estimated to create up to 500,000 new jobs.”
