President Trump pushed again Monday to slash funding for the Great Lakes - repeating a move he made unsuccessfully previous year. The other programs receive significantly less federal funding. Bill Huizenga, Michigan (R): "The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative plays a leading role in preserving and restoring the Great Lakes ecology while strengthening the Great Lakes economy".
"If there's one thing we've learned, we can't take it for granted that others understand how important our water is", she said, calling the budget proposal "outrageous". Advocates say they'll resist the proposed spending cuts.
Started in 2010, the GLRI provides annual money for Great Lakes toxic sediment removal and invasive species management and is popular among lawmakers representing Midwestern states, particularly in MI. Pruitt went so far as to say it was doing more to protect public health in the Great Lakes than any other coordinated interagency effort in USA history. He said he plans to continue working to protect the Great Lakes and keep the GLRI fully funded. "The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative is a vital tool used to boost our Great Lakes both environmentally and economically".
But Executive Director of the National Wildlife Federation Great Lakes Regional Center Mike Shriberg is not so upbeat.
