Keep Florida Fishing Statement on President Trump Approving America’s Water Infrastructure Act

(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) – Keep Florida Fishing®, (KFF) an advocacy arm of the American Sportfishing Association (ASA), today released the following statement by Kellie Ralston, Southeast Fisheries Policy Director of the American Sportfishing Association, applauding President Donald Trump for approving America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 (S. 3021).

“We thank President Trump, Congress and all who have supported this bipartisan legislation. With this final approval, it’s now time to get to work on securing sufficient federal funding for these projects.

“This act will not only authorize the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) Storage Reservoir and expedite revisions to the Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule, it will also support restoration efforts for the Kissimmee River and develop a Harmful Algal Blooms technology program. We look forward to seeing the positive impact this bill will have on Florida’s waters and most importantly, its focus onto addressing South Florida’s water quality issues.”
