WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement after the bipartisan America’s Water Infrastructure Act became law today:

“This new law will make a real difference in people’s daily lives. After all, everything from clean water to local jobs depends on resilient infrastructure. By making critical upgrades to our ports and waterways, we improve the flow of goods and services that is so vital to commerce and manufacturing. And we are cutting down on the endless studies and needless delays that slow down these local projects. This is all good news for our communities, and it is another way to continue driving our economic momentum.”
