*** Members,

We very much encourage you to participate in the public meetings and bring forth any concerns and/or regional issues you may be having. The Mississippi River Commission’s public meetings are an excellent opportunity to be heard.

As IRPT has done for many of our Members, if you would like assistance in preparing materials, talking points or statistics, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are here to help.

If you do plan on giving a brief 5-minute public comment, please let me know and I will relay that information to the Corps so you are put on the agenda.
