Missouri is getting a warning from Washington about how proposals to deal with state budget problems could cost millions of dollars. There’s a move in the Legislature to authorize payments on State general obligation bonds using funds from the Missouri Clean Water State Revolving Fund. That’s not allowed under the federal Clean Water Act and Senator Bond warns the Environmental Protection Agency could hold back its contributions to the Fund. Those payments amount to $74-Million. Bond says complying with the law is not an option. Bond says money targeted for safe drinking water should not be used to cover a budget shortfall.
