Governor Scott Walker has joined a bipartisan coalition of Wisconsin’s congressional delegation urging President Trump not to cut funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative that targets the region’s biggest environmental threats. 

Seven Republican and Democratic members of Congress from Wisconsin joined with 40 other lawmakers in signing a letter to Trump asking him to continue funding for the program, which has  pumped more than $2.2 billion dollars into the eight-state region for projects that have removed toxic wastes from industrial harbors and fought invasive species in waterways.
