Great news today for Delaware job growth, environmental quality and public health: A major bipartisan bill I co-authored to update and enhance our nation’s water #infrastructure passed the Senate and is on its way to the president’s desk.
As ranking member of the Environment and Public Works Committee I fought hard to include key priorities for Delaware and I’m proud that we were able to deliver:
🛳️ Supports the Port of Wilmington expansion by increasing dredging limits in the Delaware River
🥛Authorizes new funding and provides new tools for communities like Blades and Millsboro to address drinking water contamination
🏖️ $75 million program to address critical beach nourishment projects along our coasts
