Great Lakes Restoration Up in the Air
The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette has a feature from AP writer John Flesher. An EPA official stated Friday that despite an internal document suggesting money for new programs won't be available, the Bush administration remains committed to a wide-ranging Great Lakes restoration project. The Chicago Tribune reported that the memo said federal officials have "serious concerns" with a blueprint released last summer that proposes spending $20 billion over 15 years to fix problems such as invasive species, toxic spills and sewer overflows in the lakes.
