07/02/2015 Engineering News-Record

Nossaman partner Barney Allison was quoted in an ENR article, "At Its One-Year Mark, WRRDA Achieves Mixed Results." In the article, Mr. Allison discussed finance issues related to the roll-out of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act.
According to the article, as the statute reaches its one-year mark, industry officials say it has been successful in some areas but has fallen short of expectations in others. Few of the act's 34 major authorized projects have received any appropriations or are in line to get them next year, the article notes. Moreover, the article says, new WRRDA-launched innovative-finance programs are still at the starting gate. 
Mr. Allison said Environmental Protection Agency officials and their consultants "have done a very good job of rolling out the program." However, he added, public water agencies "are saying, ‘Show us the money.'"
