Early spring snow didn’t dampen NWC’s 2014 Legislative Summit held March 25-26 in Washington. An outstanding line-up of speakers provided informative and insightful remarks on numerous issues impacting the water resources industry. The Honorable Bob Gibbs, Chairman, Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment, Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, U.S. House of Representatives, discussed the ongoing WRDA/WRRDA conference committee negotiations and anticipated a final report in the near future. Other speakers included Steve Stockton, Director of Civil Works, Mark Mazzanti, Chief of Programs Integration, and Jim Hannon, Chief, Operations and Regulatory, from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; Paul “Chip” Jaenichen, the Acting Administrator of the Maritime Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation; and Roger Cockrell, Professional Staff Member from the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations.
Christopher Guith, from the Institute for 21st Century Energy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, offered a compelling look at energy opportunities and challenges facing the United States; and a pair of speakers, Doug Bellomo, Director of Risk Analysis, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration at FEMA, and Dan Delich, Director of the National Levee Issues Alliance, discussed disaster risk reduction objectives, flood insurance changes and levee safety policy.
