The GLRI is an inter-agency program created to address the most significant problems in the Great Lakes, and works to protect, restore, and maintain the Great Lakes ecosystem.
With the realization that President Donald Trump's 2019 budget request calls for the elimination of all but $30 million of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), an array of MI senators and representatives have expressed varying levels of discontent.
President Donald Trump's budget includes no money for so-called Clean Water Act Section 319 programs, which help communities reduce polluted runoff.
Trump's budget would give it $30 million.
The administration's Environmental Protection Agency spending plan said the agency would "encourage state, tribal and local entities to continue to make progress" in those places. With that in mind, compare the size of the Finger Lakes and the Great Lakes and it's easy to see what an enormous resource the Great Lakes are and how many people are directly affected by them. "In all, it makes no sense". Trump tried to slash Great Lakes funding in last year's proposed budget, but Congress included the full $300 million and Trump eventually signed the budget bill with the funding.
He also proposes chopping funds to the EPA by 2.8 billion dollars - that's about 34 percent of its current funding level - and eliminating all climate change-related programs.
Campaign director for the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition Todd Ambs says, "The Trump plan is pure fantasy and will not help solve the nation's water infrastructure crisis". As the Free Pressnotes, the cuts were buried in one line in a 96-page budget without explanation - a move that Democratic Congressman Dan Kildee called "draconian".
"It's clear that when it comes to the Great Lakes our priorities are at odds with the administration", Upton said.
The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative aims to protect the lakes from pollution and invasive species. "Just like past year, I will fight alongside colleagues on both sides of the aisle to promote, strengthen, and preserve our Great Lakes".
