This is the March 15, 2018 hearing titled "Building a 21st-Century Infrastructure for America: Water Resources Projects and Policy, Part 1," held before the House Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. From the opening statement of Garret Graves: "The Corps of Engineers constructs projects critical to the Nation for the purposes of navigation, flood control, environmental restoration, shoreline protection, hydroelectric power, recreation, restoration and enhancement, and fish and wildlife mitigation, and other purposes. Today we will review six U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project Chief's Reports that have been delivered to Congress since the WIIN [Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation] Act, which included the Water Resources Development Act of 2016. Additionally, the Corps of Engineers delivered to Congress the Post-Authorization Change Report on the Savannah Harbor deepening project, and I had the chance to go out there and go see that project with Congressman Buddy Carter, the local non-Federal sponsors, and impressive work being done out there, and I think certainly of national importance there." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: R.D. James and Todd T. Semonite.
