WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema cosponsored the bipartisan Drought Resiliency and Water Supply Infrastructure Act – legislation that allows Arizona cities, tribes, and water providers access to critical funding to secure our state’s water future.
“We are helping Arizonans access resources to update our water infrastructure and secure our state’s water future,” said Sinema.
The Drought Resiliency and Water Supply Infrastructure Act was introduced by Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). The bill will allow cities, tribes, and water providers access to a grant program for water storage projects so Arizona remains drought resilient. In addition to the water infrastructure grants, the bill also authorizes funding for critical forest restoration projects applicable to Arizona.
