Senators introduce bill to pay for sewer projects

Tiffin Advertiser-Tribune

WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, joined with U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, to do a bit of bipartisan legislative work Wednesday. The two senators marked Earth Day by re-introducing the Clean Water Affordability Act. If passed into law, the legislation could assist 86 Ohio communities to pay for renovations to sewer systems.

Voinovich and Brown first introduced the legislation during 2008.

The pair of senators spoke with reporters during a telephone news conference to announce the bill's re-introduction.

The Environmental Protection Agency would be given more flexibility - or encouraged to exercise more flexibility - when determining the time tables for when projects should be completed.
