Carper to Join Community Leaders to Discuss Major Water Infrastructure Bill Wins for Delaware
ELLENDALE/BETHANY BEACH, Del. – On Friday, Senator Tom Carper, (D-Del.), top Democrat on the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, will discuss major wins for the state of Delaware in America’s Water Infrastructure Act – a major bipartisan bill that Senator Carper co-authored to update and enhance our nation’s water infrastructure.
First, Senator Carper will visit Ellendale with Congresswoman Lisa Blunt-Rochester (D-Del.) to discuss the key provisions in the major water infrastructure bill to improve drinking water systems and waste water systems in the state and across the country. Senator Carper will then travel to Bethany Beach to discuss a new $75 million beach nourishment program for the Mid-Atlantic that he fought hard to get in the bill. The President will sign this legislation into law this week.
