UMRR Annual Meeting: Does It Take an Act of Congress to Protect the Mississippi River?



The answer is that Congress is one piece – an important one – of the solution to the Mississippi’s woes. In the UMRR Annual Meeting, we will have a panel of speakers to talk about bills currently in the US Congress that have the potential to greatly affect our river. We will also explore the idea of a “compact” between the river states to protect the river from water diversions. This session will set the stage for the work that LWV UMRR will tackle in the years to come.

We have a great slate of panelists for this session - representatives from organizations working for the river and leading work on federal bills and big ideas.
