The Water Act will likely be approved by Parliament in its next legislative session

LEGISLATION WATCH- The House of Representatives will likely pass a new Water Act during its next legislative session, House Agriculture Committee deputy chair Hisham El Hosary tells Youm7. According to El Hosary, the committee plans on finalizing its discussion of the law during the current session, which is expected to come to a close on 30 June. The law — which first emerged back in 2014 — outlines how water is distributed, who has the right to use it, sets new penalties for wasting and new regulations for Egypt’s sewage systems. Cabinet had approved the amended act last September.
