$300M for Great Lakes cleanup moves forward in Congress

A wide-ranging Great Lakes cleanup program would receive $300 million next year under a spending bill approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee. The committee released the Fiscal Year 2018 Interior and Environment funding bill on Nov, 20, which includes $300 million for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) that Senator Tammy Baldwin secured as a member of the committee. “The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative is critical for the health of our region, our communities, and our clean water resources. It helps us clean up polluted sites, restore water quality and combat invasive species,” said Senator Baldwin.
