Capitol Hill This Week - What to Watch For UPDATED

Below are the U.S. House and Senate activities currently scheduled for this week that relate to Mississippi River Basin water resources. On Tuesday afternoon the House overwhelmingly (412 to 4 - roll call vote tally here) approved a national water resources bill - the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA). The Senate is expected to take up the measure on Thursday, where it should also easily pass. See this article for more details on that measure and of its relevance to the Mississippi River Basin and Coastal Louisiana.

Links are provided to the relevant committee pages on the Internet, and, where appropriate, to pieces of legislation. Many Congressional proceedings are webcast live, and these should be, as well (follow the appropriate link).  All times are Eastern.  This page will be updated as warranted.
