From the President

Jim Rich, President Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce

You are going to hear a lot about the channel improvement project for the Sabine-Neches Waterway as Congress takes up the Water Resources Development Act of 2012 (WRDA). The civil works program of the Army Corp. of Engineers investigates, constructs and in certain instances operates and maintains projects for navigation, flood damage, hurricane and storm damage reduction, environmental and ecosystem restoration, water supply and more. WRDA is the principal legislation for authorization of civil works projects and policies for the federal government.
