This bill authorizes the federal government to provide funds to repair public and private infrastructure at the local level if the president has declared an emergency as the result of chemical, lead, or other contaminants in the system. ACU opposes this new precedent for federal aid designed to help the city of Flint, Michigan for what is primarily a state and local responsibility and opposed this bill.
