In developing this year’s Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee received requests from several Senators for both new Environmental Infrastructure (EI) authorizations and budget authority modifications to existing EI authorizations. These EI requests — if not included in the annual report submitted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) under section 7001 of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 (33 U.S.C. 2282d) — constitute congressionally directed spending items under Rule XLIV of the Standing Rules of the Senate.

The Committee followed the Senate Rules requirements for consideration of these requests, including requiring all Senators to submit financial certification disclosures attesting that neither they nor their immediate family has any financial interest in any of the items requested.

By State, each Senator’s requests as they were made to the Committee are linked below. Questions regarding individual requests should be directed to the requesting office.
