Baldwin helps secure Great Lakes and coastal resiliency funding

Living in Wisconsin, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin knows how important the Great Lakes are to your daily life. It is part of the reason the Democratic senator from Wisconsin helped push for $2.6 billion to be allocated for coastal resiliency and Great Lakes-related projects with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Over the course of time, the money will help communities along the Great Lakes prepare for possible challenges presented by climate change such as issues with the fisheries, coastlines, and more. With how important the environment is to Wisconsin’s economy, Baldwin says the investment is worth it.

The funding is a part of the Inflation Reduction Act that was passed last year. Baldwin is proud of her role in writing portions of the Inflation Reduction Act that is starting to make a difference across the country.
