Graves bill would prioritize flood control

Graves bill would prioritize flood control

Missouri Congressman Sam Graves has reintroduced a bill in the U.S. House that would make flood control the highest priority for management of the Missouri River and remove “fish and wildlife” as an authorized purpose for river management.

Meanwhile, Missouri Governor Mike Parson will meet again

with the governors of Iowa and Nebraska at the end of this month to discuss the

flooding impact in all three states.

Parson says he wants an outside agency to review the Corps of Engineers’ management of the Missouri River, “I think somebody needs to take a secondary look of what’s going on on these rivers in our state and give the states some more control in this.”

Parson says they’re really trying to push the Corps to give

them some answers.
