Priority LWe expect a busy 4th quarter on Capitol Hill. Congress returns for business on September 5. NUCA's government affairs staff will be working with House and Senate staff to address the FY2024 appropriations shortfall in our EPA State Revolving Fund programs. We must secure this funding and work with Congressional appropriations lawmakers to help them understand that the nation's water and wastewater infrastructure resources should not be subject to partisan battles.
Below is a link to our latest NUCA Legislative Update, "Appropriations FY2024", featuring NUCA VP of Government Affairs Zack Perconti. I invite you to click on the link below for a quick video update about where we stand going into Congress's fall session. (2:27 in length). Please also like and repost this video on our social media.
Our Muster alert on the FY2024 appropriations issue is available for your own message to lawmakers. If you haven't done so, I invite each of you to use our Muster system to contact your own lawmakers and urge them to reverse this unnecessary resource shortfall affecting the construction programs in their own district and states.
Lastly, we are working on details for a virtual summit to be held on November 8th. Timing of this virtual summit may be critical depending on negotiations from the Government Appropriations that end on September 30th, but usually the Congress and White House extend by a few months for more negotiating.
