Durbin: Legislation Will Help Cope With Next Drought


Legislation passed by the US Senate will help the state of Illinois if there is another severe drought, according to Senator Dick Durbin. 

 

The bill approved Wednesday would create a pilot program to improve the nation’s water infrastructure through public-private partnerships, and would also authorize a study of the entire Mississippi River Basin. 

 

Durbin says the steps are necessary because “weather events are becoming more severe and more frequent.”
