I am glad to see the Chicago Tribune focus on the threat Asian carp pose to the Great Lakes as well as some of the innovative actions taken to prevent this invasive from entering Lake Michigan. As co-chair of the Great Lakes Task Force, protecting the Great Lakes remains one of my top priorities. We must continue to focus on bipartisan solutions and work with officials in Illinois, Michigan and states across the region to craft a workable solution that strengthens the ecology and the economy of the Great Lakes.Posted by Rep.

This week, I had the opportunity to surprise and congratulate Ethan, a student at Zeeland East High School on winning the 2018 Congressional App Challenge. By creating “Right on Red,” Ethan has provided a wonderful example of how students across West Michigan can combine what they have learned in the classroom with their ideas to design a unique app of their own creation.

This week, the President signed bipartisan legislation into law to protect the Great Lakes and strengthen the U.S. Coast Guard. S. 140 helps prevent the spread of invasive species by clarifying how ballast water will be regulated and monitored on the Great Lakes. This legislation will also create a new Coast Guard-led research, training, and response center that will help preserve and protect the Great Lakes. Lastly, this bipartisan measure will provide a new ice breaker on the Great Lakes to help maintain year-round shipping, commerce, and navigation.
