Congressman Dave Reichert (WA-08) today voted to support funding for troops and ongoing operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Reichert also supported provisions that designated funding for the Army Corps of Engineers to address damages to the Howard Hanson Dam located in his district.
"I'm proud to support our troops and the work they're doing every day to fight for our safety and security," Reichert said. "The brave men and women of our military put their lives on the line each day to protect the freedom we hold dear, and I am determined to provide them with the resources, equipment and tools they need to fight, to win, and to come home safe and sound to their families and friends."
"I was also proud to work with the Washington delegation to make sure the Army Corps of Engineers was provided the funding it needs to address damage to the Howard Hanson Dam," Reichert continued. "This is absolutely critical to protect the people, businesses, and infrastructure of the Green River Valley and the health of our state and local economies. I've made fighting for these resources a top priority, and I'm pleased that this funding has been secured for the Corps."
