The article reports that the leaders of a Senate panel have pledged not to act on the U.S. White House Office's proposal to cut 200 million dollar from an Environmental Protection Agency state wastewater infrastructure grants program in fiscal 2007. According to Environment and Public Works Committee chairman James M. Inhofe, the proposal shows that the U.S. President George W. Bush administration does not fully understand the nationwide crisis and need for more water infrastructure money.
