Stupak, Rogers continue disagreement
over Great Lakes policy
Posted on woodtv.com July 26, 2005
WASHINGTON Congressmen Bart Stupak and Mike Rogers continued
their ongoing disagreement over how best to protect the
future of the Great Lakes.
Rogers -- a Republican from Brighton -- tried to win
approval for a measure that would have urged that management
authority over the Great Lakes be given to eight governors
and two Canadian premiers around the Great Lakes.
Rogers says he doesn't want decisions about the Great
Lakes to be made by the federal government.
But his measure failed in the Foreign Relations Authorization
Act last week after Stupak -- a Democrat from Menominee
-- argued it would undermine current protections in place
for the Great Lakes.
