FARGO — A proposal to charge for water in Missouri River reservoirs would be banned under legislation passed Wednesday by the U.S. Senate. The States’ Water Rights Act, sponsored by Sens. John Hoeven, R-N.D., and John Thune, R-S.D., easily passed the Senate in a voice vote.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Iowa and Nebraska are withdrawing from an association of Missouri River states and tribes because of a dispute over how to manage the river, which flooded large parts of both states last summer.
