Obama Should Sign Water For The World Act To ‘Improve The Lives Of Millions’

The Hill: Mr. President, sign the Water for the World Act
Hugh Evans, chief executive officer of the Global Poverty Project, and Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.)

“…Last week, this bipartisan bill passed unanimously in the House of Representatives. And on Monday, the Senate passed it by unanimous consent. Now, it’s up to President Obama to sign this critical piece of legislation into law. The Water for the World Act will improve the lives of millions of people by ensuring that funding for water programs gets to the communities with the greatest need. … By making significant strides in water and sanitation issues, the United States government is leading the creation of the world that we want: a world without extreme poverty” (12/17).
