U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) today applauded the Senate’s unanimous approval of a package of amendments to a water infrastructure bill that included two provisions sought by the Senator, including one of Arizona’s major legislative priorities for combatting drought.
On Thursday, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) introduced a Senate bill similar to Congressman Gosar’s Local Zoning and Property Rights Protection Act, H.R. H.R. 1995, which would prohibit the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) from implementing a new regulation known as Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH)
U.S. Senators John Boozman (R-AR) and Ben Cardin (D-MD), both members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee (EPW), welcomed Senate passage of their bill, (S. 653) to reauthorize federal grant funding for water resources research institutes in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Water Resources Research Amendments Act (WRRA) provides continued federal support for important research on state and regional water challenges.
