U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill today questioned the nominee to lead the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers about challenges facing Missouri communities damaged during flooding in 2011 and possible solutions to prevent future incidents. McCaskill used a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing to quiz Lieutenant General Thomas P. Bostick regarding last year's flooding and the Army Corps' intentional destruction of Birds Point Levee. McCaskill, reiterating her opposition to the Army Corps' decision to breach the levee, asked for Bostick's commitment to rebuilding the levee to the original height of 62.5 feet.
