GLIN==> NEMW/Great Lakes Hill Update - Appropriations Update



     GLIN-folks!

    Yesterday the Senate Full Committee on Appropriations Marked up both Energy
and Water Appropriations (Army Corps) and Commerce, Justice, State and the
Judiciary Appropriations (NOAA, IJC and GLFC).  CJS is particularly good for the
Great Lakes region, with increases for most of our programs.  Highlights:

    A $3 million increase for the Great Lakes Fishery Commission.
    A $200,000 increase for the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory
    A $200,000 increase for the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force

    While the Senate mark for the Corps of Engineers is less rosy, increases
were provided for several key programs missing from the House mark.
