Governor Reeves’ Statement on the Biden Administration’s Rejection of Yazoo Pumps Project 

JACKSON, Miss. — Governor Tate Reeves today released a statement regarding the Biden Administration’s rejection of the Yazoo Pumps Project. The project, previously approved by the Trump Administration, would have reduced devastating flooding in the Yazoo Backwater Area and ensured the safety of area residents.

“It seems like every day, the Biden Administration finds a new way to fail Mississippians,” said Governor Tate Reeves. “The Trump Administration’s Environmental Protection Agency realized the importance of protecting the Mississippi Delta and its residents when they allowed this project to proceed. Instead, President Biden is choosing to put radical ‘environmentalists’ ahead of human lives and livelihoods. My administration will fight this decision and stop at nothing until this project gets done.” is an online news source serving Simpson and surrounding counties as well as the State of Mississippi.
