>	Three Cheers for Senators Levin and Glenn who stood up for the Great Lakes
>during the Senate's floor debate on the Senate Energy and Water
>appropriations bill.
>	The amendments added $500,000 to initiate the second phase of the sediment
>technology development program (known as ARCS) pursuant to WRDA '96.  They
>also clearly authorized the Corps to use ecosystem restoration funds for
>lamprey barriers.  This use is clearly within the scope of ecosystem
>restoration program which targets restoration of impacts created by Corps
>navigation projects.  The amendments also provided funds for the National
>Contaminated Sediments Task Force to begin the work it was authorized to do
>since 1992.
>	A more comprehensive summary of the Energy and Water and other
>appropriatons of interest to the Great Lakes will be forthcoming via
>Rochelle soon.  Meanwhile, if you have a chance, it's a good time to let
>Senator Levin know that his energy for Great Lakes issues is greatly
