In a recent mailing, U.S. Representative Mike Gallagher included information on Great Lakes funding:
Earlier this month, the Administration released its FY19 budget proposal which slashes funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) from $300 million to just $30 million. I came out in opposition to this proposed cut, and will continue to fight for full funding levels. The health of our Great Lakes—the largest surface freshwater system on earth—cannot be ignored which is why I’m committed to protecting our waters through efforts like Save the Bay. I believe we have a moral obligation to pass on clean water to future generations so that they too can come to know and appreciate these natural treasures. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated on my social media channels on anything else that happens regarding GLRI.
