McCaskill on Floods

Missouri senator Claire McCaskill says her office will work with the Missouri congressional delegation to voice concerns of the Army Corp's release of water into the Missouri River.

Speaking in Kansas City on Friday, McCaskill said the Corps has a difficult job. She notes there's been a long struggle between states to balance Missouri's need for a navigable river with the agriculture and recreation needs of the Dakotas.
