Should States of Mississippi Flood Area Share Costs of Flood Control Project? Con

Small, Len
February 1928
Congressional Digest;Feb28, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p51
The article presents the author's views against sharing the costs of Flood Control Project by the states of Mississippi flood area. According to him, the problem of flood control is a national problem, because the flood areas are too large, the flood damages too great and the flood sources are too remote for effective local or even State administration. The Mississippi Valley is perhaps the most productive area in the entire U.S. The appropriations necessary to preserve the productivity of this great region and to protect the people and property, both private and public, from future flood disasters will in his opinion prove to be a wise and desirable expenditure of public funds, resulting in great advantage to all the people and to the U.S. Government.
