Representative Brown Urges Congress to Maintain Funding Levels for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative

(AREA) -- State Representative Terry Brown of Pigeon introduced a resolution in the state House this week urging the Congress of the United States to maintain funding levels for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative after a U.S. House subcommittee voted to cut funds for the restoration initiative by 80%. Brown says the great lakes could be in danger if the proposal to slash the budget is passed. The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative provides important funding for things like fighting pollution, protecting drinking water and eradicating invasive species like Asian carp.
