Joint Letter of Support for FY 15 Appropriations for the SRFs

This week, ASDWA joined several state and utility organizations in urging the President to request, as part of his FY 15 request to Congress, appropriations for the SRFs and the 319 program that are at least as high as those in in the final FY 14 appropriated amounts ($ 907 million, in the case of the DWSRF).  (Please see attached letter.)

The President’s budget request is just the start of a long (and increasingly drawn out) appropriations process.  But, it’s an important first step and ASDWA felt that a joint letter of this type with our utility and state partners was a useful “marker” to lay down for the budget debates that will ensue into the Summer and Fall.
