JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) The founder of the Steamboat Arabia Museum in Kansas City is supporting legislation that would move the attraction to Jefferson City.
The current museum houses a collection from a steamboat Hawley helped excavate in 1987 from a field in Kansas.
David Hawley testified before the Legislature last week that the current museum is too small. KCUR reports the issue comes as Hawley is planning the excavation of a new steamboat.
