WRRDA Signed by President Obama

Posted in Capital and Funding, Legislation, Tax, Water Quality

To close the loop on our previous stories regarding the WRRDA (here and here), President Obama signed the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 on Tuesday. Now it is on to the appropriation process, although there are some immediate changes to how projects are approved, etc., that we could see the benefit of sooner. During the signing, the President encouraged Congress to continue its work on transportation infrastructure. (In related news, Senator Murray warned of a looming crisis in the Highway Trust Fund caused by reduced revenue from gasoline tax.)
