Missouri governor Jay Nixon returned to St. Joseph yesterday to announce funding for repairing flood-damaged levees along the Missouri River will be a topic during next month's special legislative session.
The governor says he wants lawmakers to help develop a plan to pay for hundreds of miles of damaged levees starting in northwest Missouri and working downstream across the state. Nixon says it's critical for the levee protection system and to help reclaim flooded farmland.
