Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congressman John D. Dingell (D-MI12) announced that the groundbreaking event for the new Visitor Center at the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge scheduled for Wednesday, October 16, in Trenton has been postponed indefinitely due to the ongoing federal government shutdown.

"It's an absolute shame that the partisan bickering and wayward ways of Washington have forced us to postpone this important event at the Refuge, but I'm hopeful a resolution will soon be reached and we can continue on with this planned project without further delay," said Dingell. "The partnerships we've been able to build throughout Southeast Michigan and with our friends in Canada have helped to grow the Refuge to more than 17,000 acres of preserved wildlife. I'm proud of what we have been able to accomplish together, and look forward to taking part in this important groundbreaking event soon."
