In a joint statement, State Representative Robert Sprague and State Senator Cliff Hite announced that a provision has been included in the state's two-year operating budget to re-authorize the use of $3 million to fund flood mitigation efforts in the Blanchard River Watershed. Current funding would have expired in June of 2013 without the renewal. House Bill 59 is expected to be voted out of the House of Representatives this week and be brought up for immediate consideration by the Senate. The bill must be passed by both chambers and receive the Governor's signature by June 30, 2013.
