One step forward, two steps back for Lewis & Clark Regional Water System

Funding for the Lewis and Clark Regional Water System continues to trickle in at a level far below what has been budgeted. In President Obama's fiscal year 2015 budget proposal, $2.4 million is set aside for the project. Project officials call that a "kick in the gut" and an "absolute travesty." Construction has been going on for several years. The total project is more than a half-billion dollars.

State environmental officials are considering action against a Hull, Iowa cheese processing plant after a storage tank overflowed causing an estimated 1,200 gallons of sludge to run into a nearby stream.

A public hearing will be held to discuss the license of Sioux City's Argosy Casino

The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission holds a public hearing in Altoona Wednesday morning to discuss its denial of a license to Sioux City's Argosy Casino.

That was after Argosy owner, Penn National Gaming, and its nonprofit partner, Missouri River Historical Development, failed to negotiate a new contract in 2012.
