Subject: American Rescue Plan Treasury Guidance

Letter excerpt:

Our nation’s water providers appreciate your strong leadership on the American Rescue Plan (ARP). During this critical time as the nation transitions toward economic recovery, the ARP provides significant relief to states and localities. As the Department of the Treasury prepares guidance on the measure’s $350 billion state and local government fiscal recovery fund and $10 billion capital projects fund, the undersigned water organizations urge you to ensure the legislation’s specific emphasis on providing funding for “necessary investments in water, sewer or broadband infrastructure” is maintained.
