Wire reports say George W. Bush today signed an executive order on Great 
Lakes policy that gives EPA coordinating responsibility for Great Lakes 
restoration. The formal announcement is to take place in Chicago later this 
afternoon.

The order establishes an "interagency task force" to coordinate the many 
federal agencies working on Great Lakes protection.

The coordination is welcome, but long overdue. More than another task force, 
the federal government needs to get on task helping the states clean up and 
restore the Great Lakes with funding and strong legislation. The $4-6 
billion Great Lakes restoration bills now pending in Congress are a good 
start.
