GLIN==> NEMW/Great Lakes Hill Update



     GLIN-folks!

    Two Appropriations Markups scheduled this week.

    The House Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, State and Judiciary will mark
up its appropriations bill tonight (6/6 - 7pm).  I hope to have the results
posted to the website (www.nemw.org "Great Lakes" "Congressional Updates")
tomorrow morning.

    The House Full Committee on Appropriations will mark up the VA, HUD and
Independent Agencies Appropriations bill tomorrow (6/7 - at 10am).  Now would be
the ideal time for those last-minute calls in support of particular programs of
importance to the region.  The subcommittee declined to earmark funds within EPA
- which is likely to lead to significant cuts for the Great Lakes National
Program Office, Great Waters Program and ATSDR Great Lakes Fish Consumption
Study.  For status of other EPA national clean water and Great Lakes
appropriations, see the Appropriations Charts on the web.
