America's Water Infrastructure Act :good for entire nation

America's Water Infrastructure Act Is Good for the Entire Nation:

U.S. Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. He spoke on the Senate floor on the need to pass America's Water Infrastructure Act. Barrasso said that President Trump has called on Congress to take up major infrastructure legislation.

Last week, both Barrasso and EPW Committee Ranking Member Tom Carper, a Democrat from Delaware, announced a bipartisan, bicameral agreement on the comprehensive water infrastructure legislation with the leadership from the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. The bill is the most sweeping infrastructure package to be considered this Congress. It grows the economy, keeps communities safe, cuts red tape and lowers the deficit.
