Manufacturing Groups Applaud Passage of Water Resources Development Act
29 Jul 2022
WASHINGTON (July 28, 2022) — The American Chemistry Council joined with the Texas Chemical Council (TCC), the Economic Alliance Houston Port Region and the East Harris County Manufacturers Association (EHCMA) to thank Congress for its strong bipartisan vote to pass a major infrastructure bill that will help support manufacturing in the Texas Gulf Coast.
Following similar action in the House, the Senate passed its own version of the Water Resources Development Act of 2022 (WRDA). Both versions contain important provisions that will bolster the nation's ports, harbors and inland waterways.
Why is it important?
The bills provide much needed resources to improve and strengthen water transportation infrastructure for one of the world's largest chemical manufacturing centers, the Texas Gulf Coast.
