This summer, I have been working hard to make sure Michigan’s priorities move forward in Congress. This includes protecting the Great Lakes, improving our infrastructure, strengthening our national security and helping our veterans. Here is an update on some issues of concern to all Michigan residents.
The Soo Locks are vital to our country. We need to improve the 50-year old infrastructure and build a new lock to grow the economy and protect good-paying jobs for hardworking Michigan residents.
I have always been a strong supporter of funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The GLRI has worked in partnership with conservation efforts including groups like Ducks Unlimited, and researchers at Central Michigan University who have done critical work assessing the health of 10,000 miles of wetlands that support the Great Lakes ecosystem.
I spoke on the House floor to honor the outstanding Michigan residents who have organized and participated in farm convoys to help those hurt by wildfires in the American heartland.
