The U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday, December 8th to pass the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act (WRDA).
Congressman Ken Buck joined 234 other House members in a yes vote to pass WRDA. The legislation is expected to benefit farmers in the 4th Congressional District by funding maintenance and improvements of inland waterways and ports.
"We must invest wisely and frugally in America's infrastructure, which is why I voted for the WRDA Act," Buck said. "Growing a bushel of Colorado corn doesn't do anyone much good if you can't get that corn to the right market."
