U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) issued the following statement after President Trump made an announcement today on the importance in investing in our nation’s water infrastructure:

“I am encouraged to hear President Trump highlight the need to invest in the nation’s water infrastructure which is so critical to Missouri and the 3rd District,” Luetkemeyer said. “In 2015, 72 percent of United States agricultural exports and 71 percent of imports were waterborne and with much of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers in the 3rd District, I know just how important it is to invest and care for our inland waterways. Investment in our water infrastructure system is vital and I am encouraged to work with the President and the administration to ensure America continues to lead the country in feeding the world.”
