Baldwin looks to expand Great Lakes Restoration Initiative 

U. S. Senator Tammy Baldwin introduced a bill that will continue the funding for the Great Lakes restoration.  The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Act of 2019 reauthorizes the initiative for another five years while incrementally increasing the funding from the current $300 million levels to $475 million by 2026.  Sen. Baldwin says the bi-partisan legislation is critical for the health of the region, including Door and Kewaunee counties.



Baldwin co-sponsored the bill with ten other senators along with 40 members of the House of Representatives.  Since 2010, the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative has provided more than $2.5 billion to fund over 4,700 projects throughout the Great Lakes region.
