Minnesota lawmakers look into downstream flooding from Red River

Rep. Kent Eken, DFL-Twin Valley, Thursday night said that on Monday he will offer an amendment to a public works funding bill that would prohibit spending state money on the diversion if the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers does not make an effort to protect downstream communities.
