Walberg Votes to Improve Water Infrastructure, Strengthen Great Lakes Economy
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) voted on Wednesday for the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), a bipartisan bill that provides improvements for ports, locks, ecosystem restoration, and other waterway infrastructure projects critical to Michigan's economic competitiveness. H.R. 8 passed the House by a 408-2 vote.
“This water infrastructure legislation is fundamental for Michigan jobs and the Great Lakes economy,” said Congressman Walberg. “Growing our economy and getting Michigan-made products to market hinges on having well-maintained ports throughout our state, including the Port of Monroe. Long-term investments in water infrastructure will help strengthen our transportation network, create good-paying jobs, and benefit all who enjoy and rely on our magnificent Great Lakes.”
Congressman Walberg serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Education and the Workforce Committee as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions. For more information on Walberg's work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
