United States Representative Mike Gallagher visited Sturgeon Bay to tout his new bipartisan legislation, which aims to ensure the Great Lakes are navigable for commerce throughout the winter. Gallagher pointed out that the current system, relying on the US Coast Guard for limited travel, dates back to the 1930s. Gallagher says that it is imperative to increase the number of icebreakers on Lake Michigan.
