BREAKING: President Biden Signs Sen. Ossoff Provision to Remove Lead Water Pipes from Public Schools into Law

Washington, D.C. –– President Joe Biden signed U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff’s provision to repair and remove lead water pipes from public schools into law.

“Every child deserves clean, healthy drinking water at school, and every family deserves clean water in their home,” said Sen. Ossoff. “This is a huge win for Georgia and a testament to what we can accomplish when we work together.”

As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, the provision will ensure all children have safe, clean drinking water.

The bill includes $55 billion for clean water — the largest ever investment in clean water.

Sen. Ossoff launched his push to replace lead pipes in schools in April, urging Congress to act after a recent study found Georgia, along with 22 other states, received an “F” grade for water quality in public schools.
