Transportation and Infrastructure Committee leaders last week introduced the bipartisan Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2018, legislation that provides for improvements to the Nation’s ports, inland waterways, locks, dams, flood protection, ecosystem restoration, and other water resources infrastructure.

WRDA 2018 (H.R. 8) was introduced by Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA), Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Ranking Member Peter DeFazio (D-OR), Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee Chairman Garret Graves (R-LA), and Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee Ranking Member Grace Napolitano (D-CA).

The legislation follows the transparent process approved by Congress in the 2014 water resources law for considering proposed U.S. Army Corps of Engineers civil works activities.

Consideration of WRDA legislation in 2014, 2016, and now 2018 ensures that Congress upholds its responsibility to authorize nationally important water infrastructure improvements that are more locally driven.

The Committee will hold a markup of H.R. 8 at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 23, 2018.
