House To Vote On Delta Queen Bill Today
The House of Representatives votes on a bill today that would let the Delta Queen explore the Ohio River once again. The steamboat used to carry passengers on overnight trips until Congress refused to renew a fire safety exemption in 200, because the riverboat is made of wood.
Since then, the historic boat has been simply a floating hotel in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
The bill in the House would renew the exemption, and allow cruises to resume.
