WIIN Act passes Senate
Published by Rebecca Bowden,
The Water Infrastructure Improvements Act for the Nation (WIIN) Act, formerly known as WRDA, has cleared the US Senate by a vote of 78-21 after passing the US House of Representatives last week. The bipartisan bill now needs to be signed by Obama.
WIIN provides much needed certainty to the US water infrastructure system by allotting funds for water infrastructure products across the country, as well as authorizing over 30 port, levee and dam projects.
