On Thursday, April 23, the House passed H.R. 1145: National Water Research and Development Initiative Act.

It contains new programs like a national water census and information technology systems that will enhance the supply and quality of water. The legislation also ensures that we have an effective future national water strategy that uses federal research and development dollars efficiently and eliminates redundant programs. I voted YES.
