GLIN==> Governors Applaud Federal Legislation to Restore the Great Lakes

Today, the Governors of the eight Great Lakes States expressed strong support for the Great Lakes Collaboration Implementation Act introduced in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.  The bills, sponsored by Senator Mike DeWine (R-Ohio) and Senator Carl Levin (D-Michigan), Congressman Vernon Ehlers (R-Michigan 3rd) and Congressman Rahm Emanuel (D-Illinois 5th), would implement the recommendations of the Great Lakes Regional Collaboration, a strategic planning effort in which the Governors played a leadership role.  28 Congressional representatives from throughout the Great Lakes basin have signed on to the bills.
