Virtual Congressional Town Hall: The Value of Federal Investment in Water Reuse
2:00 – 3:30 pm Eastern | 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Pacific
WateReuse Members: Free
In these times of social distancing, how do you communicate with Congress about the value of investment in water reuse to sustain communities, support business growth, and protect the environment?
Join the WateReuse Association for an interactive, virtual town hall with congressional staff from key House and Senate offices including the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and House Natural Resources Committee.
As we begin the second half of 2020, Congress faces a compressed timeline for completing critical legislation that could include significant investment in water recycling, including the Water Resources Development Act, economic stimulus packages, and annual appropriations bills. Congressional staff will join us on video to share highlights from the first half of the 2020 Congressional session, and offer insights into what can be expected in the second half.
Do not miss this opportunity to speak with congressional staff involved with critical legislation, ask questions, share your stories, and learn more about how legislative action can support water recycling around the country.
