Federal lawmakers hear from those directly impacted by this summer's Missouri River Flooding.
A hearing of the subcommittee on water resources was held on Capitol Hill yesterday, and included Holt County Clerk Kathy Kunkle and Atchison county farmer Richard Oswald. Oswald testified he lost a million dollars worth of contracted corn and beans in his bottomland, and gave lawmakers a taste of the impact on citizens and the flood's aftermath.
