Help preserve Lake Michigan as the beautiful resource we have come to know. To help preserve Lake Michigan, SB 1129, the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2017, must be defeated when it comes to the floor for a vote next week.
Unfortunately, the legislation contains an amendment — the Vessel Incidental Discharge Act (VIDA) — that would weaken rules that protect the Great Lakes from invasive species, putting the lakes at risk.
Help prevent all the Great Lakes from invasive species by urging a replacement for SB 1129 that will preserve our lakes.
