The hearing of the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment, chaired by U.S. Rep. Garret Graves (R-LA), is entitled, “Building a 21st Century Infrastructure for America: Water Resources Projects and Policy.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 15, 2018, in 2167 Rayburn House Office Building.

Witnesses will include:

  • The Honorable R.D. James, Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works), Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army – Civil Works
  • Lieutenant General Todd T. Semonite, Commanding General and Chief of Engineers, United States Army Corps of Engineers
