Brown Acts To Speed Up Flood Funding

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown has introduced an amendment to a bill that would help speed up funding for Blanchard River flood mitigation and similar projects across the country. The Courier reports the amendment to the Water Resources Development Act of 2013 would make projects eligible for federal construction funds once the Army Corps of Engineers' chief engineer's report is completed. Without the amendment, the Blanchard River project would not have been eligible to receive funding until WRDA's next authorization.
