    April 28, 2016 — Committee Vote: 2016 Water Resources Development Act — Manager's Amendment
    Inhofe, R-Okla. —

    Manager's amendment that would make various changes to the bill. Among the provisions, it would strike language to require an assessment of the oyster industry and replace it with a study of the shellfish industry. Under the bill's dredging authority, it would limit the eligible reimbursement costs to those directly related to costs associated with operation and maintenance of the dredge, based on the lesser time of either when the dredge is being used in relation to federal work during a fiscal year or the actual fiscal year federal appropriations are made available for that dredging work. The amendment would require the Army secretary to convene an interagency working group on resilience to extreme weather. It also would allow the secretary to conduct regional assessments of coastal and back bay protection and of federal and state policies related to coastal water resources. The amendment also would make a number of technical and conforming changes to the bill.
