Water survey coming soon
As part of the second phase of the Golf Course Environmental Profile, GCSAA will be releasing its Water Use survey this fall. The water survey will be followed by four other topics that will be released between 2015 and 2017.
Chapters: Research proposals
due Oct. 1
Proposals for the 2014 Research Grant Program will be accepted through Oct.1. GCSAA offers funding, through the EIFG, for new research projects that will benefit superintendents and the golf courses they manage. GCSAA encourages chapters to work with university scientists to submit proposals for applied agronomic, environmental and regulatory research through the Chapter Cooperative Research Program.

House passes H.R. 5078 to halt EPA's proposed WOTUS rule
The U.S. House of Representatives voted 262-152 Tuesday to pass H.R. 5078, a bill to prohibit the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers from expanding their regulatory authority to almost any body of water in the U.S. GCSAA supported the vote through hundreds of letters sent to Capitol Hill from the organization, its chapters and members. Attention now turns to the Senate.
