The U.S. House has passed legislation that would put a two-year moratorium on an Army Corps of Engineers plan to erect barriers to prevent people from fishing below dams on the Cumberland River and its tributaries, including Center Hill Dam. The bill was introduced by Sen. Lamar Alexander. Officials say passage of the bill allows time to work out a permanent solution.

The measure now goes to President Obama for consideration
