With not too much extra waiting, the key documents were released by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Instead of a long post, here are the key links to the documents you need:
- At this link you can expand the FY17 Work Plan (at the bottom) to see Investigations, Construction, etc.
- At this link you can see the press book on the FY18 Budget Proposal.
- In terms of the six construction new starts in the FY 17 Work Plan, the plan heavily favored navigation projects (4 total), maintained the President’s environmental restoration request for Mud Mountain Dam (the only new start in any account recommended in the FY17 President’s Budget) and gave the only flood risk reduction slot to a project in the Majority Leader’s home state of Kentucky.
As always, we will continue to update you and make information available as we can.
