Senate continues massive increases
for USDA's rural water infrastructure
funding: In 2017, Congress provided
the largest ever annual appropriation to
the U.S. Department of Agriculture's
(USDA) rural drinking water and sewer

infrastructure program of $1,060,000,000
(federal fiscal year 2018). In comparison,
the previous year's level was $571,190,000
(federal fiscal year 2017). On May
24, 2018, the Senate Appropriations
Committee approved their version of the
USDA budget bill including $958,183,000
for the program.
NRWA's effort to turn "mandatory
consolidation" into something
acceptable: Key members of the House of
Representatives' Safe Drinking Water Act
(SDWA) committee are actively preparing
H.R. 3387, the Drinking Water System
Improvement Act of 2017 (amendments
to the SDWA), in anticipation of full House
of Representatives consideration in the

near future. The bill passed committee
in November of 2017. In May of 2018,
NRWA President Steve Fletcher testified
in favor of the legislation. Subsequently,
the mandatory consolidation provision
was added to the bill to ensure bipartisan
support and allow for committee passage
of the legislation. In an effort to remove
or revise the new provision, NRWA (and
specifically New York, Mississippi and
Illinois Rural Water Associations) urged
the key committee members (Shimkus of
IL, Tonko of NY and Harper of MS) to not
include the provisions in the bill presented
to the House of Representatives. Currently,
the NRWA Regulatory Committee is
reviewing a potential compromise on
