Missouri Farm Bureau applauds Missouri River amendments

Missouri Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer was successful this week in adding important provisions to the 2014 Energy and Water Appropriations Bill. Congressman Luetkemeyer authored language to continue defunding the Missouri River Authorized Purposes Study and the Missouri River Ecosystem Restoration Plan. Congress defunded both programs for fiscal years 2012 and 2013.

Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst, a farmer from Atchison County in northwest Missouri, commended Luetkemeyer for his leadership on these common-sense amendments: “Congressman Luetkemeyer has listened to Missourians who live and work along the Missouri River, and once again taken action to prevent the unnecessary expenditure of taxpayer funds. It makes sense to spend limited federal dollars wisely rather than on expensive experiments. We are grateful to Congressman Luetkemeyer for sponsoring the amendments and others in Missouri’s Congressional Delegation for supporting them.”
