Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.) has introduced a “Freedom to Fish”
act, to prohibit the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from its plan to block
boating access below 10 dams on the Cumberland River system. "I’m...frustrated
that the Corps, in numerous meetings at all levels, has placated the public
rather than attempting to work with us to reach a compromise," Whitfield said.
"This has left me with no other choice than to seek a legislative solution to
the corps’ overreach.” Chattanoogan.
