Press Briefing: Trump Administration Proposed Cuts, Rollbacks—Implications for Great Lakes

Leaked preliminary budget numbers from the Trump Administration contain drastic cuts to core Great Lakes restoration programs. The proposed cuts—from $300 million down to $10 million—come at a time when the Trump Administration has released a slew of executive orders, several rolling back clean water and other environmental protections. The Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition will host a briefing with reporters chronicling recent current events and what they mean for federal Great Lakes restoration efforts: What are the impacts on Great Lakes cleanup efforts? Implications nationally? What can be done? What does the U.S. Congress have to say about all this?
