ASFPM Makes Recommendations on Possible Joint WRDA Proposal

Sep 28, 2020 | Legislative, What's New

ASFPM has sent a letter to leaders on the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure with recommendations regarding a possible joint proposal for a Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) that could be brought before their respective bodies before the end of the year.

In the letter, ASFPM urges support for several provisions from the House and Senate bills that are intended to strengthen and enhance the Army Corps of Engineers’ efforts to assist communities. These efforts serve to avoid and better manage flood risks and improve communities’ floodplain management and natural hazards resiliency in the face of increasing flood hazards and costs due to changing climate, sea-level rise, and the impacts of local and regional development.
