Mich. AG not satisfied with presidential plan for Asian carp
LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new presidential plan to deal with Asian carp is not satisfying Michigan's Attorney General Bill Schuette.
He says anything short of physically separating the Great Lakes and Mississippi River Watersheds leaves our region at risk.
The plan released by the administration this week promises improvements to barriers and further work on technologies such as underwater cannons and promises a report with options for a permanent solution later this year.
Michigan is one of five states suing the federal government to seal off the Great Lakes Basin.
A federal judge rejected the suit in December, but the states have appealed.
