ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump's emergency declaration could, at least temporarily, siphon funding from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) in St. Louis and send it instead to the new border wall.
McClatchyDC is reporting that Pelosi's office has a list of around 400 projects nationwide that could be affected by President Trump's national emergency declaration, which would steer billions of dollars towards the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
Blunt also says he's still gathering facts on the issue.
Mayor Lyda Krewson says she's just getting word of Speaker Pelosi's list, but adds she's been talking with the state's Congressional delegation since the President's move.
The Mayor says it's in the federal government's hands now; the city's officially turned over the land.
The NGA declined to comment to McClatchyDC.
