Gallagher opposes cuts to Great Lakes funding

Senator Debbie Stabenow is weighing in on President Trump's budget proposal.

His proposed budget would slash Environmental Protection Agency funding for Great Lakes restoration programs by 90% from 300 million to 30 million.

But, as is the case with so numerous president's initiatives, he is right in insisting that if taxpayers' money is spent, results must be achieved.

Trump made a similar attempt previous year but Congress refused to go along.

Great Lakes Today is a collaboration of ideastream, WBFO Buffalo, and WXXI Rochester.

The science, study and implementation of preventative measures and remediation are expensive endeavors, and local governments can't possibly be expected to coordinate the efforts needed to improve the Great Lakes, much less pay the costs.

President Trump wants to turn off the spigot on the federal cleanup efforts at numerous nation's most iconic waterways, drawing a torrent of criticism from environmentalists. The program funds cleanup work, not research, said Gregory Boyer, a chemistry professor at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, in Syracuse. Members of Congress opted to fully fund the program for 2018. The cut proposed in the Trump administration's budget is part of an overall $3 billion budget reduction to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Trump's budget would give it $30 million. The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative works to prevent invasive species, stop runoff, and cleanup pollution. "People across MI spoke out and took action past year to stop these cuts and I know they'll do so again".

In the House, she was joined by U.S. Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI), who declared that the health of the Great Lakes must be a higher priority. "We look forward to working with Congress to put in place a bi-partisan infrastructure package that works for people, communities, businesses, and the Great Lakes". Bill Huizenga, Michigan (R): "The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative plays a leading role in preserving and restoring the Great Lakes ecology while strengthening the Great Lakes economy". "I will fight these draconian cuts in every way that I can", he said.
