President Donald Trump has signed legislation that includes work presented by Missouri Congressman Jason Smith. The legislation known as the America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 was purposed by Jason Smith to protect Missouri homes and farmland along the Mississippi River. Congressman Smith’s amendment to the water resources bill requires the prompt restoration and rebuilding of any levee damaged by the Army Corps of Engineers. This is the latest action by Congressman Smith to protect Missourians from flooding. Earlier this year, Congressman Smith was instrumental in securing funding for the Caruthersville flood wall.
