Legislation to Stop Asian Carp, Bolster Our Military Passes House with Trott’s Support
WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Representative Dave Trott (MI-11) issued the following statement after supporting the Make America Secure Appropriations Act (H.R. 3219):
“Our nation’s servicemen and women have earned nothing less than our full support. That’s why I was proud to support this legislation, which ensures they receive the 2.4% pay raise they deserve, provides them with the modern resources and training they need, and bolsters our military readiness in the face of an ever-evolving enemy.
“Furthermore, this bill calls on the Army Corps of Engineers to release the Brandon Road Lock and Dam Study, which provides critical information on how we can stop the infiltration of Asian carp into our Great Lakes. Live Asian carp are now 9 miles from Lake Michigan – they’re not slowing down, and we can’t afford to either. There’s too much at stake.”
