FIVE KEATING AMENDMENTS TO BE SIGNED INTO LAW

 

Amendments are critical to the district

 

Washington, DC - Today, five amendments authored by Congressman Keating passed the House and are now headed to the President’s desk for signature.  Two of the amendments are included in the House Amendment to S. 3021, the America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 (WRDA), a bipartisan, bicameral agreement advancing this Congress’ water resources infrastructure priorities.  The other three amendments are included in the Conference Report to Accompany H.R. 5895, the Energy and Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act of 2019 (MINIBUS), which provides funding for key parts of our government for FY19.

 

  1. The first Keating Amendment in WRDA directs the Army Corps to prioritize expedited completion of dredging in Plymouth Harbor ahead of the celebrations of the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower landing in Provincetown and then Plymouth, Massachusetts.
    1. This amendment originally passed the House in June as part of H.R. 8, the Water Resources Development Act of 2018. 

 

  1. The second Keating Amendment in WRDA gives the Army Corps the required congressional authority to repair or replace any of New England’s federally owned bridges that are necessary for evacuation during extreme weather or natural disasters.
    1. This amendment originally passed the House in June as part of H.R. 8, the Water Resources Development Act of 2018. 

 

  1. The first Keating Amendment in the Minibus provides funding for the Veterans Administration (VA) to create an opioid abuse healthcare kit for community healthcare providers.
    1. This amendment originally passed the House as part of H.R.5895, the Energy and Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act of 2019.

 

  1. The second Keating Amendment in the Minibus provides funding for administrative costs at the VA to ensure providers at VA health facilities complete a continuing medication course in pain management.
    1. This amendment originally passed the House as part of H.R.5895, the Energy and Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act of 2019.

 

  1. The third Keating Amendment in the Minibus provides funding for marine and hydrokinetic technology research and development.
    1. This was not originally included as an amendment in House legislation.  Instead, Congressman Keating worked with colleagues across the aisle and in the Senate to secure its inclusion in the final legislation.

 

Said Congressman Keating:

“These five provisions will have a great impact on our district. First, the much-needed Plymouth Harbor dredging project will prepare us for the anticipated increase in marine traffic due to the Plymouth 400 celebrations, as well as make way for the Mayflower II to return home.

 

“The Cape Cod Canal Bridges, along with other critical evacuation infrastructure, play a fundamental role in providing for the public safety of the nearly 250,000 people who live on the Cape and Islands. My second WRDA amendment grants the Army Corps the ability to push forward with efforts to ensure safe passage over the Canal, and I look forward to continue working with Army Corps leadership to ensure that our government provides the safest, most resilient evacuation routes it can.

 

“As our district struggles with the highest rates of opioid abuse and overdoses, particularly among our veteran populations, my first two amendments in the Minibus will ensure that the VA is providing the appropriate type of pain management care and that community healthcare providers have the best tools possible as they serve members of our community struggling with addiction.

 

“My final amendment in the Minibus provides funding for a specific area of renewable energy where our district is a true leader: marine and hydrokinetic energy. If we want to continue to be a hub for renewable green energy, and the jobs that come with that industry, we need to invest in its further development.”
