Dear Mr. Strimbeck:

Thank you for contacting my office to express your views regarding the low-use waterways and your support for S. 726, the Water Resources Development Act. I appreciate your providing me with the benefit of your thinking on these matters.

S. 726 was placed on the Senate Legislative Calendar for consideration. You may be assured that I will keep your views in mind should this legislation come before the full Senate for a vote.

With kind regards, I am

Robert C. Byrd
