Eddie Bernie Johnson’s Historic Victory

District 30 Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson is doing what you need to do is Congress.

By a 79-14 vote, the Senate today completed the first override of a veto by President Bush, enacting a $23 billion Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) bill into law over his objections.

The Atlanta Business Chronicle summed it up best:

The Water Resources Development Act authorizes Army Corps of Engineers projects dealing with regional water planning, water storage, flood control, storm protection, environmental restoration and inland navigation. The Water Resources Development Act is supposed to be authorized every two years, but Congress has not re-authorized the legislation since 2000.

In Georgia, there are extreme drought conditions and the water resources have been very poorly managed due to bad weather and overbuilding. I’m glad the Dallas area is not in that position.

That’s how you govern. Thank you Ms. Johnson for making sure that water-related projects in Dallas and the rest of the country go forward.
