Stabenow Visits Michigan Tech To Protect Great Lakes Funding

Several research projects at Michigan Tech could be in jeopardy if funding is cut for efforts to clean up and maintain the Great Lakes.

President Trump’s budget proposal calls for eliminating support for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which currently receives roughly $300 million annually.

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow visited the Great Lakes Research Center on the campus of Michigan Tech this weekend.

Michigan Tech-led projects funded by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative amount to $4.76 million.

But the benefits of the funding are not limited to researchers at the university.

The results of many of these studies are made available to the public.
