The following statement was released today by National Mining Association (NMA) President and CEO Rich Nolan in support of the Water Resources Development Act:
“The mining industry strongly supports the enactment of a new Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) and appreciates the bipartisan work to pass WRDA through the House this week. The House’s WRDA Act and the Senate’s American Water Infrastructure Act make strong investments in our nation’s water infrastructure, ports and navigation systems. Through increased funding for dredging and port maintenance through the crucial Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund, and additional system funding for the Inland Waterway Trust Fund, we can strengthen the transportation of and support for American goods – including domestically-mined materials that are the heart of our manufacturing, energy, medical and defense supply chains – for use here at home and export abroad. We look forward to Congress conferencing these important infrastructure bills and enactment this year.”
