Attempt arises to nix funds for study on Missouri River

The head of the Missouri River Association of States and Tribes hopes a letter composed by Missouri lawmakers urging Congress to halt funding for a study about the Missouri River will not affect the project.
“We think there’s sufficient support, and some key people are backing the study,” said David Pope, the association’s executive director. “I think there’s a very strong chance that it will be funded this year, but you never know until Congress acts for sure.”
