Companion bills been introduced in the Missouri Legislature to modify how waters of the state is defined.

State Senator Rusty Black is a sponsor of the bill. 

“It’s important for us as we make our decisions on our farms and land to make sure we know what places we need to go to get permitting and that’s what I’m trying to clarify with this language,” says Black.

He says the bill narrows the “waters of the state” definition to better align with the U.S.
