President Obama Proposes Cuts to Great Lakes Program

Monday, March 10, 2014

President Barack Obama’s budget proposal introduced last week includes a $25 million cut to the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which supports cleanup and conservation programs for the lakes. The initiative’s current funding level is $300-million. Todd Ambs is Director of the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition. He tells WDET’s Laura Weber-Davis he knows a $25 million cut may not seem like a lot in the scheme of things.
