Peters Statement on Brandon Road Report on Asian Carp

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) issued the following statement on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Brandon Road Chief’s Report being submitted to Congress, which outlines steps necessary to prevent the spread of Asian carp into the Great Lakes:

“The Great Lakes are more than an economic engine and source of drinking water to 40 million people: they are part of who we are as Michiganders. We must take every step possible to prevent the spread of Asian Carp and invasive species. This report is an important step forward. I’ll be working with my colleagues to authorize the funding needed to act on Asian carp, protect Michigan’s fishing and boating industries and preserve our Great Lakes for future generations.”
