MAPPS Minute - Legislative Action Alert!

Posted By John "JB" Byrd, Tuesday, October 22, 2013

MAPPS Legislative Alert - Contact Your Member of Congress and Urge a "Yes" Vote to the Young Amendment on "Surveying and Mapping" to H.R. 3080 the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) of 2013

MAPPS members have been concerned over the increasing duplication of and competition with the private sector by the Corps of Engineers, particularly in the field of surveying, mapping and geospatial activities. Learn more.

MAPPS supports an amendment to H.R. 3080 to increase the Corps' reliance on the capable, qualified and efficient private sector in surveying and mapping. MAPPS is pleased to announce that Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) will offer an amendment to H.R. 3080 that would authorize USACE to rely on the private sector for surveying, mapping and geospatial services and activities to the maximum extent practical.
 
Debate and consideration for H.R. 3080 is scheduled to being Wednesday, October 23, contact your Representative today! This action is in the House not the Senate.
