Healing Our Waters Coalition Fly-in to D.C.

Executive Director Tony Janisch visited Washington, D.C. in May with the Healing Our Waters Coalition.  There he and other Coalition members met with Congressional leaders to ask for their continued support of Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding.  Since the inception of GLRI, BRWA has received over $500,000 for watershed action planning and sediment and fish passage restoration.

Tony was able to meet with Sen. Tammy Baldwin & Rep. Gwen Moore, and the staff for Sen. Ron Johnson, Rep. Mark Pocan, & Rep. Glen Grothman.  All of these legislators are supportive of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.

 

The House recently passed GLRI funding at $300 million. Now we need the Senate to step up and do the same.
