House Approves Levee Bill

House Approves Levee Bill

The House of Representatives has approved a bill to pay for several water-related infrastructure projects across the US, including levee improvements to protect Sacramento from major flooding. The Water Resources, Reform and Development Act will speed up projects like the Natomas Levee Improvement Program. The bill will cover $1 billion of the $1.4 billion dollar project. Local funds have paid for nearly half of the 42-mile levee system, designed to protect Sacramento from a 200-year flood.
