WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) released the following statement upon passage of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) on Wednesday (June 6):

“Yesterday’s vote is good for communities along the Arkansas River and the entire Fourth Congressional District," Westerman said. "The Water Resources Development Act reauthorizes investment in our inland waterways system, which is vital to our state’s economy. This legislation includes important language which would expedite the completion of the study for the Three Rivers project, essential to keeping commerce flowing through the MKARNS system. I will continue to fight for Arkansas infrastructure with my colleagues on the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee and look forward to the work which lies ahead.”
