Press Release

Congressman Gibbs released the follow statement on the bipartisan, bicameral agreement that has been reached for the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) conference report:

“I am pleased that we are able to deliver a strong bipartisan bill that will streamline the project delivery process and provide for continued maintenance and construction of critically-important water infrastructure. Reaching an agreement between both chambers of Congress is vitally important to our nation’s economy and our global economic competitiveness for years to come. Our nation’s ports and vast inland waterway system provides American farmers and manufacturers with a unique competitive advantage. WRRDA is a real jobs bill – not only temporary construction jobs, but also permanent careers generated by increased efficiencies for our businesses that rely on properly maintained ports and inland waterways. I am proud of the work that was done to move this bill through the House and into Conference Committee.”
