Senate Great Lakes Task Force Gets New Vice Chair (USA)

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow was appointed as a Vice Chair of the Senate Great Lakes Task Force, which is a bipartisan organization that works to protect the Great Lakes’ ecosystem and develop the region’s economy.

Sens. Stabenow and Rob Portman (R-Ohio) were appointed to the newly created positions and will serve with Co-Chairs Sens. Carl Levin and Mark Kirk (R-Ill.).

For families in Michigan, the Great Lakes are central to our economy and our way of life,” said Stabenow. “They contribute billions to our economy, support thousands of jobs, and are a priceless natural resource for Michigan and the entire country. I am honored to be named a Vice Chair to ensure that Michigan continues to have a strong voice on the Great Lakes Task Force as we work together to protect the Great Lakes for future generations.”

The Senate Great Lakes Task Force was founded in the mid-1980s and is associated with the Northeast-Midwest Institute. The organization has previously focused on projects like securing funding for dredging and preventing the spread of invasive species like Asian carp.
