Exact Words from Obama’s Budget

Obama’s budget went live at 11 a.m. today. Here is what it says about the Great Lakes on page 104:

“Accelerates the Restoration of the Great Lakes. The 2010 Budget includes a new $475 million inter-agency initiative to address regional issues that affect the Great Lakes, such as invasive species, non-point source pollution, and contaminated sediment. This initiative will use outcome-oriented performance goals
and measures to target the most significant problems and track progress in addressing them. EPA and its Federal partners will coordinate State, tribal, local, and industry actions to protect, maintain, and restore the chemical,
biological, and physical integrity of the Great Lakes.”
