Bill Introduced To Help Rural Water Projects

Bill Introduced To Help Rural Water Projects

U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken introduced legislation on Wednesday to help rural water projects like the Lewis and Clark Regional Water System move forward.

“Here we have a situation where the local communities have paid their share, they've paid about 99% of their share and it's time for the federal government to pay its share,” Franken said.

The bill would provide $80 million per year for 15 years to complete construction of authorized rural water projects.

When completed, the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System will provide water to 300,000 people in Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota.
