Bills Introduced – 3-23-21

Yesterday with the Senate in Washington and the House meeting in pro forma session (this is a ‘Committee Week’ in the House) there were 124 bills introduced. One of those bills may receive additional coverage in this blog:

S 914 A bill to amend the Safe Drinking Water Act and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act to reauthorize programs under those Acts, and for other purposes. Sen. Duckworth, Tammy [D-IL]

According to at least one news report notes that the bill would “create a grant program for projects aimed at making water systems more resilient to natural hazards, cybersecurity threats [emphasis added] and extreme weather.” There is nothing in Duckworth’s press release on the bill that confirms this, but that means little. The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee will take up the bill at their business meeting scheduled for today. No link to a committee print of the bill is available on the meeting website.
