May 29, 2014

Washington, D.C. -- Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, issued the statement below on the approval by the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works of the City of Los Angeles' proposal for a locally-supported revitalization initiative for the Los Angeles River.

 

Senator Boxer said: "It is great news that the Obama Administration has approved the City's locally-preferred alternative for the revitalization of the Los Angeles River. This plan would bring the LA River back to life and promises much greater opportunity for economic and recreational development, providing thousands of additional jobs and billions of dollars of increased investment in the local economy. It is a major step forward in the process."
