GLIN==> Northeast-Midwest Coalition Forms New Task Forces



Posted on behalf of Glenn Starnes <gstarnes@nemw.org>

The Northeast-Midwest Institute has created a River Basin Washington Program
to help advance interstate watershed management within the Susquehanna,
Delaware, and Potomac river basins. The program works closely with the
Susquehanna River Basin Commission, Delaware River Basin Commission, and
Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin.

To advance these efforts, members of the Northeast-Midwest Congressional
Coalition have formed three bipartisan tasks forces. The Susquehanna River
Basin Task Force is co-chaired by Reps. Sherwood Boehlert (R-NY), George
Gekas (R-PA), Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), and Paul Kanjorski (D-PA). The
Delaware River Basin Task Force is co-chaired by Reps. Michael Castle
(R-DE),  Sherwood Boehlert, Robert Borski (D-PA), and Rush Holt (D-NJ). The
Potomac River Basin Task Force is co-chaired by Reps. Tom Davis (R-VA),
Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Constance Morella (R-MD), and Eleanor Holmes Norton
(D-DC).

The River Basin Washington Program is organizing congressional briefings on
Capitol Hill, organizing staff trips to the river basins, and compiling a
database of basin-related projects and priorities.
