Republican Congressmen from Louisiana have repeatedly criticized Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards' management of flood recovery. That fight continued in Washington on Wednesday, where Edwards testified before the House Government and Oversight Reform Committee

Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) -- and others -- pounded Edwards with scathing criticism for almost three hours. 

To provide more context on the hearing, WWNO's Jessica Rosgaard sat down with Molly Peterson, who has been reporting on flood recovery for the Louisiana Public Radio Partnership.
