CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK
The House is scheduled to consider H.R. 1854 on Tuesday, December 8, 2009, under suspension of the rules, requiring a two-thirds majority vote for passage. H.R. 1854 was introduced on April 1, 2009, by Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-CA) and referred to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, which took no official action.
H.R. 1854 would reduce the authorized funding amount for a water resources project for Big Bear Lake, California, from $15 million to $9 million. The original law authorized the funding for water reclamation and distribution at the Big Bear Area Regional Wastewater Agency in California. The current-law was last extended by the Water Resources Development Act of 2007 (WRDA) and expires on December 31, 2009.
A CBO cost estimate for H.R. 1854 was not yet available as of press time.
