Katko eyes federal research agency that could benefit Auburn company

Mar 10, 2020

U.S. Rep. John Katko is proposing the creation of a new agency that could help an Auburn company. 

Katko, R-Camillus, introduced a bill that would establish the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Water within the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The agency, known as ARPA-H2O for short, would support research and development to improve technology for water treatment and other water-related systems. 


The bill has a Democratic cosponsor, Michigan U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee. 

"Aging water infrastructure poses a serious threat to our drinking water and as a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I have been a leader on water quality efforts — passing bipartisan legislation to bring our water infrastructure into the 21st century and working to increase funds for the Drinking Water and Clean Water State Revolving Fund programs," Katko said.
