The bills reauthorize legislation on water resource development and the Safe Drinking Water Act, according to the Bloomberg Environment. The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee is also introducing a big water bill, according to a committee aide. These bills, which create funding for flood control and drinking water grants, are updated every two years by Congress. A full committee markup on both water bills will be held May 6, according to the Senate environment panel. The Senate legislation includes the America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2020. This bill authorizes $17 billion in infrastructure projects and reauthorizes the EPA’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund at increasing levels over the next three years. (more).
