The U.S. House of Representatives approved the conference report on water resources legislation by a vote of 412 to 4. Six months of intense negotiations between House and Senate conferees produced a bipartisan bill aimed at reforming and streamlining an outdated bureaucracy, increasing flexibility for public-private investment and eliminating earmarks. The Senate may vote on the conference report by the end of this week.
