WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senators John Barrasso (R-WY) and Tom Carper (D-DE) released the following statements on Congress passing the Water Resources Development Act of 2020 (WRDA 2020). The legislation was included in the omnibus. The legislation passed the Senate by a vote of 91 to 7. The bill will now go to President Trump to be signed into law.
“Congress has passed significant bipartisan legislation to improve our dams, ports, flood-prevention infrastructure, reservoirs, and water systems,” said Barrasso. “The Water Resources Development Act will get our economy moving again. It will help ensure American-made goods are shipped safely from the heartland, to the coasts, and around the world. The Water Resources Development Act will keep communities safe and cut red tape. I am thankful to Ranking Member Carper for his partnership, and I look forward to President Trump signing the Water Resources Development Act into law.”
