Drinking Water Protection Act August 5, 2015

"We passed legislation previously to help get the Federal Government more involved. About a year ago, we passed legislation to get EPA but also NOAA—the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration—USGS, and other Federal entities more involved and engaged and working together better."
50Th Anniversary Of Oregon State University Hatfield Marine Science Center August 3, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Over the last half-century, thanks in large part to early collaboration with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, the Hatfield Center has served students from community college to post-doctoral candidates. In addition to providing educational opportunities, the Hatfield Center works closely with the Environmental Protection Agency to research the most pressing environmental issues of our generation. As climate change and sustainability increasingly impact our Nation’s agriculture and energy policies, Oregonians can take comfort in knowing that OSU’s Marine Science Center has the technology and partnerships necessary to spearhead State, national and global initiatives."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 3, 2015
Rob Portman, R-OH
"We had to work with some people on my side of the aisle who thought maybe EPA didn’t have a role here. But EPA does have a role. It is a really important role. It can bring best practices, and it certainly can bring the best research done in the country. It happens to be done in Cincinnati, among other places, at EPA. We have required EPA under this legislation to come up with a plan to deal with this issue immediately for Lake Erie, working with the other agencies, such as USGS, NOAA, or the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and USDA, and to come up with a plan that helps us to deal with this issue right now."
