U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) issued the following statement after his amendment to prohibit funding of the Missouri River Ecosystem Restoration Plan (MRERP) was included in the Fiscal Year 2016 Energy and Water appropriations bill:

“MRERP was created as a well-intentioned plan but it has turned into a federally-funded platform for environmental activists who have little to no regard for our river communities. I have successfully included prohibiting funding of this amendment in the past few Energy and Water appropriations bills and I am pleased that, once again, my colleagues unanimously agreed to include this provision in the bill.”

This amendment was adopted by the House as part of the Energy and Water appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2012, 2013, and 2014.
