NATCHEZ — Two mayors are traveling to Washington, D.C., this week to join a new voice for Mississippi River cities.

The Natchez Democrat reports Natchez Mayor Butch Brown and Vidalia, La.,  Mayor Hyram Copeland will join nine other mayors of cities that share the banks of the Mississippi and members of Congress to announce the formation of the Mississippi River Bicameral Caucus Thursday.

The mayors are members of the Mississippi River Cities & Towns Initiative, a mayoral-led effort to create a coordinated voice for the Mississippi River that began last year.

The caucus will also unveil its platform for improving the waterway.

Brown says one of the goals is to encourage strong bipartisan leadership to pass water resources bills, such as the Water Resources Development Act.
