Congressman Sires Hails Passage of WRRDA Bill

Washington, D.C - Today, Congressman Sires proudly supported H.R. 3080, the Water Resources Reform and Development Act, which passed unanimously out of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.  This bipartisan legislation reauthorizes the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA)—legislation responsible for authorizing the water resources program of the Army Corps of Engineers—for the first time since 2007.

“Passage of a new WRDA bill is good for New Jersey’s 8th district, and for our nation,” Congressman Sires said.  “This bill will keep Army Corps projects moving forward, and contains important reforms to ensure a larger share of money generated for harbor maintenance by New Jersey’s ports stays right here in New Jersey.”

 H.R. 3080 will now move to the House floor for consideration.
