The Western Governors’ Association submitted policy recommendations to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment, urging Congress to assist states in addressing water infrastructure needs and complying with federal water quality requirements by adequately funding State Revolving Funds (SRF) for the Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act. The letter of September 27, 2023, signed by WGA Executive Director Jack Waldorf, also encouraged Congress to provide greater flexibility and fewer restrictions on state SRF management. “The Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act have been the cornerstone of ensuring that Americans can access reliable and clean water,” the letter read. “Investments in water delivery and wastewater infrastructure are essential to our nation’s continued prosperity and environmental protection.” Read the full transmittal for additional details.
