Utility Engagement Needed as Congress Ramps Up Infrastructure Work
NACWA released a call to action early this week on infrastructure that includes CASA member agencies. As the Senate focuses its work on turning the high-level bipartisan infrastructure framework released in late June into actual comprehensive legislation, NACWA is requesting that utilities nationwide weigh in with their Senators and Representatives on the infrastructure bill and advocate the importance of including the highest level of water funding possible, especially in the form of direct grants. CASA is similarly working to support an extensive infrastructure package for the water sector. NACWA has created a template letter for use when reaching out to your Members of Congress if your agency is interested.
