Critical Water Infrastructure Bill Resurfaces in Senate

On May 15, Senators Menendez and Crapo reintroduced a version of their Sustainable Water Infrastructure Investment Act. Identical to the water private activity bond legislation by Representatives Duncan and Pascrell in March, the duo edited the bill to enable billions of dollars in private capital investment in the nation’s critical water infrastructure. “This legislation could create over a million jobs leveraging a modest investment by the federal government into billions of dollars of critical private economic investment to upgrade and rebuild again water infrastructure in communities across the nation,” says Senator Menendez.
