WRRDA passes out of the House

Earlier this afternoon, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 412-4 in favor of the Conference Committee Report # 113-449 renewing the nation’s water resources law.  The legislation now must be approved by the U.S. Senate which is anticipated.  According to congressional staff, the intent is for the Senate to give final approval to the report by week’s end allowing the president to sign it into law following Senate passage.
