WASHINGTON – This week, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) visited Black River Rural Electric Cooperative in Madison County.

“Black River Rural Electric Cooperative had 80 percent of its service trucks destroyed by severe weather last October,” said Blunt. “This week, I was in Madison County meeting with local officials to get an update on the recovery efforts. I was also glad to see that co-ops in nearby counties offered a helping hand after the storm, providing equipment and crews to help Black River restore power to customers within days.”
