News: Trump Signs Water Resources Development Act Into Law

President Trump has signed the America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 – which includes the Water Resources Development Act of 2018 (WRDA) – into law. Thanks in part to advocacy of America’s boaters and anglers over the past several months, this critical legislation is now on the books.

WRDA includes several of the recreational boating industry’s top water infrastructure priorities. Specifically, this bill authorizes key dredging programs, Everglades restoration projects, the use of new technologies to detect and prevent harmful algal bloom outbreaks, projects to combat aquatic invasive species, and streamlines U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ procedures.

Thanks to boaters, anglers and conservationists for being outspoken and active on WRDA. The passage of this bill is a reminder that when we unite as an industry, we can make a difference.
