Washington, D.C. – The House of Representatives today passed H.R. 3080, the Water Resources Reform and Development Act. American Rivers President Bob Irvin stated:

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn and members of the City Council today announced an agreement for an on-time, balanced budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 that includes no tax increases, while continuing investments in essential City services. The budget remains balanced through billions of dollars in agency savings actions and increased revenues from the city’s economic growth, benefiting from a more diversified economy led by the tech, film and television, tourism and higher education sectors. The budget for FY 2014 allocates an additional $58 million to the New York City Housing Authority, filling some of the gap caused by Federal sequester cuts. It also includes $250 million in City capital funds for resiliency measures outlined in “A Stronger, More Resilient New York.” The City Council is expected to vote on the budget agreement this week, marking the 12th consecutive year Mayor Bloomberg and the City Council have enacted an on-time, balanced budget.
