AGC-Supported $5 Billion Water Infrastructure Bill Advances

May 26, 2016

On May 25, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee approved an AGC-supported $5 billion Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), which authorizes new U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ civil works construction projects, including locks, dams, levees, harbor maintenance dredging and environmental restoration projects, among other construction projects. Specifically, the bill authorizes 28 new Army Corps projects, which you can find here.

In April, a Senate committee passed an AGC-backed $9 billion WRDA bill, which also includes millions for drinking water infrastructure. AGC will work with both chambers of Congress to enact the most robust construction investment WRDA bill possible.
