WASHINGTON – During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing today, Senator Josh Hawley raised concerns to Secretary of the Army Mark Esper about the Army Corps of Engineers’ role in the historic flooding taking place in Missouri. Last Friday, Senator Hawley surveyed flood damage in Holt County and heard numerous concerns from constituents about the Army Corps’ responsiveness and potentially misplaced priorities leading up to the flooding.

Secretary Esper responded by saying he will send the Army Corps to Senator Hawley’s office today to hear his concerns.
