Mississippi River Legislative Caucus (MRLC)

Assisting river legislators who are committed to a thriving, healthy Mississippi River

Overview

The Mississippi River Legislative Caucus (MRLC) is designed to assist legislators representing river districts. The goal of the MRLC is to build the capacity of legislators to more effectively address river health and water quality issues and to create a forum for collaboration on growing communities and local economies. MRLC staff provide support to legislators through in-state meetings, alerts and updates, individual outreach, and a regional forum for legislators throughout the corridor to collaborate with their peers across state and party lines.
