Mr. DEWINE. In the past, this subcommittee has been very supportive of the Great Lakes Basin Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Program. The Great Lakes Basin program is a federal-state partnership, and its goal is to protect and improve Great Lakes water quality by controlling erosion and sedimentation; limiting the input of associated nutrients and toxic contaminants; and minimizing off-site sources of damages to harbors, streams, fish and wildlife habitat, recreational facilities and the basin's system of public works.
