WASHINGTON, D.C., December 6, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — House Committee on Natural Resources Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement on the Water Infrastructure Improvements Act for the Nation (WIIN) Act, a comprehensive water resources agreement set for consideration this week on the House:
“This deal is a no-brainer. This is a big step forward for people who live in the West and are suffering from drought. We have finally agreed to the premise that we should store more water before it flows into the ocean.”
Provisions within the jurisdiction of the House Committee on Natural Resources provide drought relief in California and across the West, address long-standing water settlement agreements for the benefit of taxpayers and Native Americans, and expand conservation, recreation, and management of water and other natural resources.
