Palmer Statement on H.R. 5303


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Gary Palmer (R-AL) released the following statement after voting against H.R. 5303, the Water Resources Development Act of 2016:

"Yesterday I voted against H.R. 5303, and in support of the people of Alabama," said Palmer. "Although the bill has some good provisions, section 113 of the bill would undermine our state's efforts to resolve the water dispute between Georgia, Florida and Alabama. This provision represents one of many reasons people distrust Congress. It was included without debate and inserts the federal government into a matter that can and should be resolved by the states. This is another occasion where states' rights only matter to certain members when it benefits them."
