Obama rolls out budget and Great Lakes take a hit

When President Obama revealed his $4 trillion budget Monday, Midwest water watchers noticed that the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative was taking a hit. The 2016 budget allocates $250M, down from $300M in the last budget. Joel Brammeier from Alliance for the Great Lakes explains what this move will mean for the health of the region’s waterways.
