2017 Great Lakes Commission Federal Priorities
An Agenda for Great Lakes Restoration and Economic Revitalization
The investments we are making in the Great Lakes—whether for maritime transportation, waterfront economic development or environmental cleanup—are creating jobs, protecting public health and revitalizing struggling communities. The Great Lakes states are leading this important work in collaboration with local communities, tribes, business and industry, and conservation organizations. Representing the Great Lakes states and provinces—Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Ontario, Pennsylvania, Québec and Wisconsin—the Great Lakes Commission offers these priorities to continue the progress we are making in leveraging the Great Lakes as a vital economic and environmental asset for our nation.
