U.S. Senate Bills address Missouri River floods

Flooding across the Missouri and Mississippi rivers this spring have politicians talking, and one of the topics is the Corp’s management practices and priorities. On that topic, two bills were introduced this week that may have impacts in North Dakota.

One would remove fish and wildlife as one priority on the list of those that are considered when managing river and reservoir operations. Another would create an advisory committee with representatives from each state in the Missouri basin to provide guidance to the Corps.
