Entry Title Date
Water Resources Development Act Of 2005 July 14, 2005
Sheila Jackson-Lee, D-TX
"I applaud the Chairman for the inclusion of section 4104 that calls for a “study to determine the feasibility of carrying out a project for flood damage reduction” in Harris County. Tropical Storm Allison destroyed expansive areas of my district in June 2001. More than 1,400 homes in the Bellaire section received serious flood damage. About 90 percent of Bellaire is in the Brays Bayou flood plain, according to new maps drawn by the Harris County Flood Control District after that storm, and I did submit requests in the fiscal year 2006 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act for $12,500,000 to be used to fund for ongoing contracts and to initiate additional construction contracts to mitigate some of this residual damage."
