December 2018

Summary Analysis

The Water Development Board (Board) asserted in their December 1, 2018 report to the State Auditor’s Office that enactment of Senate Bill 1289, relating to the purchase of iron and steel products made in the United States, resulted in immediate changes to five of the Board’s State financial assistance programs.

The Board sent a survey to determine the impact of Senate Bill 1289 on political subdivisions that received financial assistance from the Board during fiscal year 2017. The Board reported there was no impact based on limited responses to a survey sent to 70 entities representing 83 projects.
