WCI Supports Bill Passage

Monday, July 24, 2006
Waterways Council, Inc. (WCI) expressed its pleasure with the passage in the United States Senate of Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) legislation, S. 728, which authorizes critical U.S. Army Corps of Engineers waterways and natural resources programs. Seven lock and dam modernization projects on the Upper Mississippi and Illinois rivers, and Bayou Sorrel on the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway will be authorized by this legislation. The strong vote in favor of the WRDA bill underscores a growing understanding of the importance of the Corps of Engineers Civil Works program and of the benefits of the inland waterways system and its role in keeping the U.S. economically strong and competitive. The bill aims to improve waterways, ports, flood and hurricane protection systems, and also restore important environmental ecosystems.
