Final Spending Bill Includes Great Lakes Funding

14-May-2018

After months of back and forth, Congress approved a spending budget that includes $300 million for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. This budget will last until September, when negotiations will begin again. Congress also mandated that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers submit a report on what more can be done to keep Asian carp from getting into Lake Michigan, especially by making the locks safer in Joliet, Illinois.
