The Associated General Contractors of America has lauded the filing of the bicameral conference committee's $8.2 billion Water Resources Reform and Development Act report submitted on Thursday. "This measure will strengthen our nation's transportation network, keep America competitive in the global marketplace, and reform and streamline the way we move forward with improvements to our ports, locks, dams, and other water resources infrastructure," said Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa., chairman of the House Transportation Committee. The House and Senate could vote on the compromise legislation by next week, according to these reports.
