Posted By Amanda Bayhi On October 23, 2013 @ 2:02 pm In News & Analysis | No Comments
The House Rules Committee yesterday  made in order 24 amendments  to H.R. 3080 , also known as the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA). As part of their work on the legislation, members will consider the amendments.
Work on the bill  will consist of members debating and passing a rule for WRRDA before considering the 24 amendments.
H.R. 3080 would only authorize waterways spending. The congressional appropriations committees would still need to approve funding.
House leaders told The Hill that the last votes are expected around 9 p.m. or 10 p.m. Wednesday.
