Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 5303, the Water Resources Development Act:

“The House has just passed a bill that will improve economically vital infrastructure with no earmarks and that is fully offset. That’s the definition of responsible government. Countless communities, businesses, employees depend on open ports, strong dams, and a seamlessly functioning waterway transportation system. Chairman Shuster (PA-09) and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee produced a bipartisan bill that answers our nation’s needs the way we need them answered.”
