Momentum Builds in Washington to Pass Great Lakes Water Protections

The U.S. Congress is getting closer to protecting the Great Lakes from depletion.

The U.S. House Judiciary Committee is marking up the Water Compact today, followed by a U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Read our testimony here.

The action on the Hill comes days after President Bush voiced his support for the water agreement— which you can read about in the Detroit Free Press, Detroit News and Stateline.org.

Presidential contenders Barack Obama and John McCain are also singing the praises of the water agreement, as you can see in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Help make sure that Congress keeps the Compact moving forward. Call your Senators and representative today to urge them to protect the Great Lakes and sign the Compact into law.
