Lawmakers to Discuss Low Mississippi River with Corps
At issue is the Army Corps' recent move to reduce flow of the Missouri River, which feeds into the Mississippi. Lawmakers believe that could make already low levels of the Mississippi worse, potentially squeezing commerce on that river. Grain, corn, coal, petroleum and chemicals are all typically shipped on the river. That's partly because the volume is so high that using trucks or trains would be far more costly.
