This is our dedicated Legislative Update page. As legislative bills concerning water and wastewater utilities come forth, we will do our best to keep you updated and informed.  We will also use this area of the MRWA website to post National Headlines that impact rural water and wastewater utilities across the country.  We encourage you to get to know your legislators and let them know how proposed legislation affects you and the operation of your utility.

From the Executive Director

13 September 2018

Before we know it, the 2019 Legislative Session will be arriving. We’re not sure what to expect this upcoming year, but be assured we will be watching as bills begin being proposed in late 2018. We watch for those that affect our membership either in a positive, or negative, fashion. Additionally, we keep constant contact with our representatives in Washington, D.C. Federal legislation is ever-changing, as well. Even now, we are involved with developments that could affect your financing of projects and the concept of introducing non-centralized wastewater systems into Missouri.

Remember, we always need your system’s membership.  We represent your membership in both Washington, D.C. and Jefferson City.  We need your support in order to help represent your collective voice.  When you see that membership renewal and that Legislative Assessment arrive, please, be a part of the picture that works for you.

Never hesitate to contact me if you have comments or questions about MRWA’s legislative activities.

I am,

Sincerely yours,

Randy L. Norden
Executive Director
Missouri Rural Water Association
