Sen. Franken Co-Sponsors Water Project Bill

Sen. Franken Co-Sponsors Water Project Bill

U.S. Senator Al Franken says he's shocked at the lack of federal funding for the Lewis and Clark Water Project.

He says many communities have lost millions of dollars while they wait for this water source to be complete.

He's co-sponsoring a water project bill he hopes gets through the Senate.

“I bring it up whenever I can. I've been fighting for this project. In Minnesota, we haven't seen a drop of water from it and it's not fair to the local communities that have paid their fair share or the state of Minnesota," Franken said.

Franken says if lack of funding continues, it'll be about 40 years until the project is finished.
