(Great Lakes Today) The outline of President Trump’s 2018 budget is out – and it eliminates the $300 million in annual funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which finances environmental projects all over the region.
(MPRN-Detroit) Governor Rick Snyder met Monday with the premier of Ontario to talk about regional cooperation. They say the Michigan-Ontario relationship should serve as an example as federal lawmakers consider big changes to trade and travel rules.
Gary Wilson says if the Trump administration’s proposed cuts stand it would be devastating for Great Lakes restoration. The contributor to Detroit Public Television’s Great Lakes Bureau says it would be like a panic stop with your car. “You’re going forward and then suddenly put a halt to everything.”
