I've mentioned this before, but it certainly bears repeating: for a guide to federal policy, legislation, and initiatives relating to the Mississippi River and the watershed, there's no better guide than Mark Gorman's Northeast-Midwest Institute Mississippi River Basin Blog.
Take a look, on this day that the Congress threatened to shut down the federal government, for the latest news about that issue as well as analysis of budgetary impacts on a host of programs.
Also noteworthy is the monthly Mississippi River Basin Update, another essential collection of information on policy, news, events, and other cross-agency developments.
Quite honestly, if you are serious about working on Mississippi River-related programs, policies, or projects, you can't afford not to know these sources. They are simply essential as starting points.
