Rubio Statement on $100 Million Infrastructure Loan to Miami-Dade

Apr 5, 2019 | Press Releases

Tampa, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding the announcement by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler that the EPA closed a nearly $100 million Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) loan to the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department:
“I am pleased that Miami-Dade County is amongst the first communities in the country to benefit from Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act funds, which I have championed since I joined the Senate Appropriations Committee,” Rubio said. “This low-interest loan will enable the County to construct a new advanced wastewater treatment plant to meet state requirements to reduce ocean outfall discharges of sewage into our coastal waters by 2025, without overburdening water and sewer rate payers. I was Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives when the ocean outfall law was enacted, and it is very fulfilling to have been a part of this critical initiative to improve water quality at both the state and federal levels.”
