Reader applauds Baldwin for fighting proposed Great Lakes Restoration Initiative cuts

To the Editor:

Like many other states, Wisconsin depends on the health of the Great Lakes for its economic, recreational, and cultural well-being. The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) is a multi-state program that is vital to the continued integrity and vitality of our Great Lakes.

President Trump and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, however, have called for catastrophic cuts in the EPA budget, including complete elimination of funding for the GLRI. They seek to cripple this invaluable program. This is what happens to Wisconsin when Donald Trump gets elected President.

Fortunately, Sen. Tammy Baldwin has taken leadership on this issue by joining a bipartisan letter expressing grave concern about these cuts. Unfortunately, I cannot find any evidence that Sen. Ron Johnson is joining this effort to help our state. But at least we have Tammy Baldwin fighting for Wisconsin.
