Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague


Last week the Senate (78 – 21) and the House of Representatives (360 – 61) voted overwhelmingly to pass the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act. The WIIN Act includes provisions from the House and Senate Water Resource Development Act (WRDA) bills passed earlier in September.  WIIN authorizes the Army Corps of Engineers Chief's Reports submitted to Congress since WRDA 2014. The WIIN Act includes the Water and Waste Act of 2016 which makes changes to the Safe Drinking Water Act and Solid Waste Disposal Act.  WIIN also authorizes the EPA approve state coal ash disposal programs. AGC will continue to monitor the progress of the WIIN Act as it heads to the president's desk to be signed into law.
