MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — The governors of Minnesota and North Dakota have scheduled a meeting to discuss the future of a flood control project in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

A federal judge last month stopped construction of the $2.2 billion Red River diversion project, over complaints that the Fargo-Moorhead Diversion Authority and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers did not obtain the necessary permits from Minnesota.
