Seattle, WA — Conservatives for Environmental Reform has released the following statement:
Last week, Representatives Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) and Seth Moulton (D-MA) introduced the Flood Protection Act, which allocates three billion dollars for projects that enhance coastal infrastructure and wetlands to alleviate flooding.
When a city floods, it is a truly catastrophic event, that costs people their homes, vehicles, businesses, and even their lives. Fixing and updating dated infrastructure in coastal cities will mitigate damage from future floods. Bipartisan solutions to big problems are increasingly difficult to come by, so we are very pleased that Representatives Moulton and Curbelo were willing to set aside their differences and find common ground on an important issue.
"Flood protection should be a bipartisan concern,” said Joanna Rodriguez, Representative Curbelo's spokesperson. “We hope to garner and continue building support from areas across the country that are most at risk.”
