Representative Steve Daines Looks to Change and Improve Rural Water Projects in Montana
Representative Steve Daines introduced an amendment Wednesday to fund rural Montana water projects. Daines’ amendment increases funding for the Rocky Boy’s Chippewa Cree Tribe and North Central Mountain Rural Water System and the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes and Dry Prairie Rural Water System.
Daines also noted that reduced funding of the Fort Peck project has resulted in delayed construction and doubled costs.
The amendment was passed by the House without opposition and will be included in the final Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act.
