U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin, a Wisconsin Democrat, and a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, worked to secure an additional $9 million for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) for Fiscal Year 2020.
“Investments in the Great Lakes are an investment in the future of Wisconsin’s economy. I am proud to have worked in a bipartisan way to increase funding for our Great Lakes,” said Senator Baldwin.
“The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative has earned bipartisan support and is critical for the health of our region, our communities, and our clean water resources. It helps us clean up polluted sites, restore water quality and combat invasive species. Preserving the Great Lakes is not just an environmental goal – it is an economic necessity for Wisconsin.”
