Text Box: A survey on several of the changes that been implemented over that past 18 months in the soil and water program was sent to each of the Soil & Water District offices.  We would like to have every Board Supervisor and every District Employee complete this survey and return to Peggy Lemons.  There has been much controversy over these changes and the MASWCD Board is not unanimous on its support  of these changes.  We need to hear from everyone so we know how to represent the majority of the Supervisors and Employees.  If you need another copy of the survey to complete <click here>.  We are asking these surveys be returned by November 1, 2008 to Peggy Lemons, 1209 Biscayne Drive, Jefferson City, MO  65109.

Text Box: Among the many tasks Congress has had to wrap up before they adjourn for the November elections has been fiscal year 2009 (FY09) funding for federal agencies. This past week, both the House and Senate passed a continuing resolution (CR) that will provide funding under fiscal year 2008 levels until March 6, 2009. The CR will now go to the President, who is expected to sign it into law.  The CR will extend partial funding for federal agencies until Congress can approve funding for the full 2009 fiscal year. As in the past few years, this means long-term conservation funding for agency functions such as cooperative agreements and travel could be limited until a final funding bill is passed.
