7 Members Send Letter to Chairman Rahall and Chairwoman Napolitano Requesting Oversight Hearing on Council on Environmental Quality's Principles and Guidelines on Water Resources


WASHINGTON, D.C., July 1, 2010 -

Dear Chairman Rahall and Chairwoman Napolitano:

In light of the direct relationship between job growth, public safety and the construction and use of traditional federal water and flood management infrastructure, we urge you to hold an oversight hearing on a troubling and recently proposed Obama Administration initiative that may hinder current and future water supply, navigation and flood control efforts.

Specifically, the Obama Administration's Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) has initiated a process to revise what is commonly known as the "Principles and Guidelines" that form the basis of water resources planning and public policies that influence the type, nature and specific features of federal water resources projects. These standards are critical in determining what and how federal decisions and investments are made in the development and management of our Nation's water resources. This Administration's effort has been implemented pursuant to Section 2031 of the Water Resources Development Act of2007 (P.L. 110-114).
