The Great Lakes are national treasures. These water bodies provide drinking water to tens of millions of Americans, and contain 20% of the earth’s fresh surface water. We have seen real progress towards restoring and protecting the Great Lakes, thanks to the more than 2 billion dollars that have been invested into the lakes through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) since 2010. Unfortunately, President Trump’s budget proposal eliminates GLRI funding.
Please join us today by sending a message to your U.S. Senators and Representative urging them to fully fund the GLRI, overdue infrastructure investments, and other important federal programs that protect our water, health, and the Great Lakes.
