The federal Agriculture Department says any crops flooded during an artificial flood by the US Army Corps of Engineers on the Missouri River this Spring won’t be covered by federal crop insurance – despite the fact that it’s the government creating the flood in the first place. Southeast Missouri Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson says while she has not talked to the President on this issue, some cabinet members have been listening. Emerson is part of a Congressional field hearing being held on this issue in Jefferson City on Tuesday.
