This is the January 10, 2018 hearing on "America's Water Infrastructure Needs and Challenges," held before the Committee on Environment and Public Works. From the opening statement of John Barrasso: "Unlike other contentious issues, historically Republicans and Democrat members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee have been able to work together and pass WRDA [Water Resource Development Act] legislation. To put it another way, this is legislation that moves. Regardless of party affiliation, we understand that these kinds of investments are far too important to our economy and security to fall victim to partisan politics. The members of this Committee represent a diverse group of communities with different needs. Our Committee has members that represent Baltimore, Maryland, and Anchorage, Alaska; Des Moines, Iowa, and Mobile, Alabama; Greybull, Wyoming; Wilmington, Delaware. The citizenry and millions of other Americans expect Congress to do its job by passing WRDA legislation to grow their economies and to keep them safe." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Scott Robinson, Bill Cassidy, Julia Ufner, William Friedman, Nicole T. Carter, and Steve Cochran.
