Washington, D.C.– Today, the House passed HR 4031, the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Act . Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (WI-05) is a co-sponsor of the legislation, which delivers large benefits to Great Lakes communities and helps to conserve the lakes as a valuable resource.
“The House extension of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) Act is an important step in boosting Great Lakes communities. This legislation will benefit Wisconsin’s hard working families and lake industries. It is an important step in conserving the lakes as a precious resource. This vote has been long overdue, and I urge the Senate to approve this legislation as soon as possible.”
