Congressman Tim Bishop on our Nation's Water Resources by TheInnerLoop published on 2013/04/25 16:24:16 +0000 Cannonball! Join our hosts, Howard Marlowe and Michael Willis, as we take a dive into our nation’s water resources here on The Inner Loop. Usually, when we think of water we think of the water that comes out of our tap, but water resources encompass much more. Brad Pickel, Executive Director at Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association, talks about our nation’s Intracoastal Waterways, why they are so important to our economy, and the issues that our waterways face today. Later in the show our hosts speak with Congressman Tim Bishop, Representative for New York's 1st Congressional District and Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Water Resources and the Environment, to discuss what is being done in Congress to protect our nation’s water resources. What makes the Water Resources Development Act so important? Why do we need to have a new bill? Will we see a bill this year? We have so much water to talk about; this show is guaranteed to make a splash!
