Senators Markey and Warren Continue to Fight for Massachusetts Provisions in Water Resource and Infrastructure Bill
Massachusetts Senators Edward J. Markey and Elizabeth Warren today continued their effort to include several key provisions benefitting Massachusetts in the comprehensive water resources and water infrastructure bill, America's Water Infrastructure Act of 2018. The U.S. House of Representatives will be voting on the legislative package tomorrow. Senator Markey is a member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, which has jurisdiction over the legislation.
"From fortifying our communities bracing for the present-day impacts of climate change, to eradicating the environmental contaminants of the 20th century from our water infrastructure, this legislative package provides welcome relief and support to communities throughout Massachusetts," said Senators Markey and Warren. "With this funding, our Commonwealth communities will be able to generate economic growth and prosperity."
