Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Marc Veasey, TX-33 released this statement following the passing of H.R. 3080, Water Resources Reform and Development Act - On House Floor today:                                                          

“I’m proud to join with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle today to support H.R. 3080, the bipartisan Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA). The bill that passed the House of Representatives today is a rare but very welcome bipartisan effort in this Congress. This is an important and long overdue bill that will reauthorize the Army Corps of Engineers to improve our nation’s coastal ports, waterways, harbors, inland waterways, as well as environmental protection structures like levees and dams. This bill will also increase flexibility for non-federal partners like Dallas and Fort Worth in their Trinity River flood control projects so that they can contribute their own funds for certain studies and expedite federal permit processing. ”
