Huizenga: A Biological Barrier Is Necessary To Protect The Great Lakes


Location: Washington, DC

Washington, DC -- Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) released the following statement in response to Gov. Quinn's comments on separating the Great Lakes and Mississippi River systems:

"Preventing invasive species from entering the Great Lakes and stopping the spread of those species that have already entered the water system are of great concern to me. I am encouraged by Governor Quinn's comments regarding the clear separation of the two systems. A biological barrier preserves an estimated $7 billion in economic activity generated by Great Lakes fisheries, protects Michigan's pristine waters for our sportfishing and recreational boating industries, and helps safeguard the ecosystem from future invasive threats. I am hopeful that Governor Quinn's words will translate into action. It's time to reverse the river's course to its natural state and with it conserve the ecosystem of the Great Lakes for future generations."
