FEDERAL UPDATE - from page 2 that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of certain truck and bus tires from China that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and that are allegedly subsidized by the government of China." Water Bill Addresses Harbor Maintenance Fund The Water Resources Development Act of 2016, H.R. 5303, was referred to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and to the Committee on Natural Resources on May 23, 2016 and was considered and marked up by the committee on May 25, 2016. The bill returns to the two-year cycle of considering WRDA legislation and, say the bill's sponsors, ensures proper Congressional oversight of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and enables Congress to address water resources development needs in a timely manner. The bill also takes the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund off budget in the year 2027. The legislation maintains the reforms included in the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 and adheres to the new transparent process established in that law for congressional review of proposed U.S. Army Corps of Engineers water resources development activities. The bill ...enables Congress to address water resources development needs in a timely manner. The bill includes a provision to ensure that, in the future, funds collected in the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund will be used for their intended purpose - harbor maintenance, according to Peter DeFazio (D-OR), ranking member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
