Great Lakes Task Force
The Great Lakes Areas of Concern is receiving $7.9 million from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to fund habitat restoration projects. U.S. Sens. Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow announced the grant Wednesday. Both Michigan lawmakers are members of the Great Lakes Task Force.
Members of Congress from the Great Lakes region are lobbying colleagues to continue funding a cleanup program for the inland seas.
Michigan Sen. Carl Levin and some fellow Great Lakes lawmakers are asking their congressional colleagues to fund programs designed to preserve and protect the lakes. Levin is co-chair of the Senate Great Lakes Task Force.
