AG Schuette Says Federal Asian Carp Report Is Incomplete

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has filed a protest in response to the latest report discussing ways to stop Asian carp from invading the Great Lakes.  

He says the report is incomplete and doesn't have a concrete plan.  

Engineers offered eight ways to block migration of the fish into the Great Lakes.  

Some of them would cost billions of dollars.  

Schuette says there does not seem to be any sense of urgency and he wants to see barriers between Lake Michigan and the Chicago waterway.  

Instead, Schuette is calling on the Army Corps to take immediate action and is recommending full separation of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River Basins.

“Michigan's Great Lakes are far too precious to allow days, let alone years to go by without taking meaningful action against invasive species that threaten to wreak havoc on our natural resources,” said Schuette.
