U.S. House Passes Sen. Ossoff’s Provision to Remove Lead Water Pipes from Public Schools

Bill heads to President’s desk to be signed into law

Washington, D.C. –– The U.S. House of Representatives passed U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff’s provision to repair and remove lead water pipes from public schools in Georgia and across the country.

The bill now heads to President Biden’s desk to be signed into law.

The bipartisan infrastructure package includes over $55 billion for clean water, including to replace lead pipes and lines — the largest-ever investment in clean drinking water.

“The passage of this historic funding will ensure Georgia children will have access to clean, healthy drinking water at school and at home,” said Sen. Ossoff.

Sen. Ossoff launched his push to replace lead pipes in schools in April.

A recent study found Georgia, along with 22 other states, received an “F” grade for water quality in public schools.
