Minnesota House approves protection for Red downstream residents

Email

The Minnesota House voted Monday night to protect Red River Valley residents downstream from a proposed Fargo-Moorhead flood-prevention project, saying they should not face worse flooding just to protect the river's largest metropolitan area.

The close voice vote came Monday night before the full House voted 92-37 in favor of a public works funding proposal of more than $1 billion.
