|Subject:||Resolution - Calling for the federal government to recognize the importance of durable, flood-resilient infrastructure|
|Soon, I will be introducing a resolution asking the federal government to strongly consider the following when addressing infrastructure priorities in the coming year:
I believe it is important for the federal government to recognize the impact that rising population changes have on our infrastructure along with land use patterns and severe weather. Since 2000, flood related disasters have caused more than $750 billion in losses around the country.
Over 250 elected officials from across the U.S. signed a Statement of Principles supporting Resilient Infrastructure that will reduce risk and meet our economic, environmental, and social needs.
Please consider joining me in sponsoring this timely resolution.
Introduced as HR1112
