The American Shore and Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) was pleased to see the House of Representatives pass H.R. 8, the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) on Tuesday, June 6.
Biennial water resources legislation is important to the nation to keep federal water resources infrastructure projects moving forward. WRDA also updates policy and provisions that will ensure critical water infrastructure is modernized and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is providing the best service to its constituents — the U.S. taxpayers. Coastal communities around the country are better off with WRDA passing in Congress every two years.
ASBPA is particularly pleased to see the following sections in H.R. 8:
ASBPA is pleased to see the House of Representatives pass this WRDA and continue the trend of passing WRDAs every two years. We eagerly await the Senate voting on its companion bill, America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018, which also has several provisions that ASBPA supports.
