Doyle says he would call special session on Great Lakes Compact

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Jim Doyle says he would call the Wisconsin Legislature into a special session to pass the Great Lakes Compact in a second if the votes to pass it were lined up.

The state Senate passed the interstate treaty last week.

But Republicans who control the state Assembly are worried about a provision that allows any Great Lakes governor to block any request to pull water from any of the lakes. They say it gives other states too much control.

The legislative session is set to end in a few days.

The compact is designed to block arid states from withdrawing Great Lakes water. All eight Great Lakes states and Congress must agree to the deal before it can take effect.
