Rep. Ehlers Continues Support for Lake Restoration

Michigan advocates met today with Rep. Vern Ehlers (R-MI).

The representative affirmed his support for the Clean Water Restoration Act, saying he was willing to “go out on a limb” to pass the bill.

Rep. Ehlers also voiced strong support for other funding priorities of the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition, including boosting the authorization of Great Lakes Legacy Act to $150 million. A long-standing supporter of toxic sediment clean-up, Ehlers was optimistic that the bill would pass at the increased authorization level.
