Congressman Rodney Davis has been working hard in Washington DC, and late last week the House passed HR 5303 or the Water Resources Development Act. Congressman Davis said this bill will help out farmers and others who work in agriculture substantially by giving them a chance to get their products out in the global market through the waterways.

Congressman Davis has a provision in the bill where he wants there to be a study of removing the Army Corps of Engineers from managing the Inland Waterway Trust Fund. He said it would be beneficial because the corps was put in place there 20 years ago and it has done next to nothing to upgrade things.

Congressman Davis appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
