U.S. Senators from the four lower Missouri River states of
Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri have introduced legislation to force the
Army Corps of Engineers to overhaul its management of river system water
projects to help prevent future flooding.
Missouri Senator Roy Blunt says the bill gives the Corps the
ability to design and plan a system with critical flood control projects – to
better protect people and land.
Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst applauds the bill and says it is a huge step forward.
