Vetoed water bill included six big Nebraska projects
November 5, 2007

The President's veto of the Water Resources Development Act has put six large Nebraska projects on hold until funding can be found -- possibly through a Congressional override of the veto. Among the projects affected are drought mitigation in the Republican River basin and drinking-water protections to help reduce flooding along the Platte River that gets especially bad when ice jams build up in winter.
