Joyce, reps ask House for full Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding
Rep. Dave Joyce, R-Russell Township, is among the Great Lakes members of Congress urging the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Appropriations for the full $300 million in funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
Joyce and Reps. Sander Levin, D-Michigan, and Louise Slaughter, D-New York, are leading the 63-member bipartisan effort to ensure funding for the program.
On March 16, President Donald Trump unveiled his proposed Fiscal Year 2018 budget with funding zeroed out for GLRI. Following the unveiling, Joyce called the cuts “hard to comprehend” when the Great Lakes provide drinking water for tens of millions of Americans.
