Known formally as the Water Affordability, Transparency, Equity and Reliability Act, the bill would provide $35 billion/year indefinitely to expand access to safe and affordable water in the United States by updating water and sewer systems, improving rural wells and septic systems, financing the removal of lead pipes, and cleaning up drinking water in our public schools.
Since the bill finances the plan by repealing a small portion of the recent tax law’s corporate tax cuts, the bill faces a steep, uphill climb in the House. The bill was referred to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and in addition, to the Committees on Energy and Commerce, Ways and Means, and Agriculture. Along with organizations across the country, Freshwater Future is giving folks the opportunity to contact legislators on these committees to build momentum for action. Water is and should be a bipartisan issue, and state and local governments can’t shoulder the burden alone. Let’s make clean water an election issue, and get this bill out of committee.
