I welcome the state's decision to ask for federal assistance to help rebuild following the severe flooding in mid Michigan last month.

I hope federal, state and local officials will continue the exemplary work they have done in response to the flooding.

The Great Lakes support billions of dollars in tourism, fishing and boating and they are integral to our way of life in Michigan. It’s time for the Army Corps to release the report and take actions to safeguard the Great Lakes ecosystem.
