S.C. Sen. DeMint wants to revamp projects funding

Sen. Jim DeMint introduced sweeping legislation Monday to overhaul how the federal government chooses which harbor, bridge and water projects to fund by setting up an independent review panel. DeMint’s bill would establish a Water Resources Commission modeled on the base-closure panel Congress set up in 1988 to decide which military facilities would be shuttered around the country.
