House Transportation & Infrastructure Legislative Markup

  • U.S. House of Representatives 2167 Rayburn House Office Building Washington, DC 20515 United States

The House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee plans will hold a legislative markup of the Water Resources and Development Act of 2016.

WRDA 2016 is Congress’ return to the regular, biannual process of authorizing projects and activities related to the key missions of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, including developing and maintaining the Nation’s waterway infrastructure and supporting effective and targeted flood protection and environmental restoration needs. 

The legislation, which contains no earmarks, maintains the strong bipartisan reforms included in the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014, and adheres to the new transparent process established in that law for congressional review of proposed Corps water resources development activities.
