Landrieu Comments on WRDA Veto Threat

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

WASHINGTON – United States Senator Mary L. Landrieu today made the following statement after the Administration renewed its veto threat of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) in a letter to House Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman James Oberstar, D-Minn. In the letter, the administration called projects in the bill “unaffordable and unnecessary.” The WRDA conference report has been completed, and the bill needs a final vote in the House and Senate before being sent to the President’s desk.

Sen. Landrieu said:

“Our delegation has worked very hard and in good faith to put forward critical and vital hurricane protection and navigation projects in the WRDA bill. Louisiana currently has 17.5 percent of the projects in the bill and a veto of this important legislation would be a blow to our recovery and long-term hurricane protection efforts. I would strongly urge the President to reconsider this position.
