There's finally some good news coming out of Congress. This week, the House passed the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2013, better known as WRRDA. This legislation is a vital part of Congress' Constitutional responsibility to provide infrastructure support for our economy to grow. House Republicans and Democrats came together to pass a bill that gets rid of funding for old and inactive projects, creates jobs, cuts red tape, and contains no earmarks. Some estimates even show WRRDA resulting in a $2 billion savings.
For Georgia, this also means expansion for the Port of Savannah. It's great news for our state's economy. I spoke about this on the floor on Wednesday, and all of us in the Georgia Delegation joined together for a statement after it passed.
There's still so much work to be done. As always, let me know how you feel.
