Approps for Env. Programs
Dear Friends of the Great Lakes:
Recently Senator Glenn and Congressman LaTourette circulated to their
Great Lakes colleagues in the House and Senate letters seeking adequate
appropriations for federal programs that benefit the Great Lakes environment.
These letters are critical barometers of support, which appropriators weigh
heavily in their difficult decisions over allocation of diminishing resources.
Most of you are very familiar with the federal Great Lakes programs and their
importance to the overall effort to protect and restore the Great Lakes
resource. If you have feelings one way or the other on funding for these
programs, it is a good time to contact your members and let them know what they
are. The House letters are almost ready to be sent to appropriators, but the
Senate letters have a little more time, and signatures are still being sought.
