Fishing restrictions near Wolf Creek Dam halted by Congressional action

(Continued)

Nashville, Tenn. —

The Senate on May 15 passed McConnell’s provision included in the Water Resources and Development Act preventing a move by federal officials to barricade portions of the Cumberland River near the Barkley and Wolf Creek Dams. Many of the Freedom to Fish Act provisions passed in the Senate WRDA bill. 
While enactment of WRDA is contingent on House consideration—which may take several months or longer—Senator McConnell, on May 16 introduced and the Senate passed separate legislation that ensures the Army Corps does not move ahead with implementing barriers before WRDA’s final passage. This is the legislation that the House passed Tuesday.
