  • President Obama has signed the Water Resources Reform and Development Act, also known as WRRDA, which will put Americans to work modernizing our water infrastructure and restoring some of our most vital ecosystems.

    It authorizes construction of 34 Army Corps of Engineers water resources projects for flood risk management, navigation, hurricane and storm damage risk reduction and environmental restoration.

    It also modifies previously authorized projects and contains numerous other water resources project-related provisions.

  • The National Farmers Union announced the 15 participants selected for the fourth class of its Beginning Farmer Institute.

    Institute participants will meet several times over the next year to learn about financial planning, farm management and farmer-owned cooperatives. In addition, they will help determine the agenda based on what they have identified as important to their operation.

    Topics include marketing, understanding U.S. Department of Agriculture programs, renewable energy, recording keeping, farm transitioning and understanding the local food system.
