“The successful roundtable kicked off our subcommittee’s discussion for the blueprint of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2020,” said Napolitano. “There is nothing like being able to see firsthand the important role that water plays in a community, and Florida served as a great location to see the Army Corps of Engineers’ key mission areas of navigation, flood control, and ecosystem restoration in action. I want to sincerely thank Vice-Chair Mucarsel-Powell for hosting us and explaining the important role Florida’s ports play to the economy and the vital ongoing environmental restoration efforts in South Florida and the Everglades. A thank you also to the Jacksonville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the National Park Service for accompanying us on a tour of the Everglades restoration.”
