Clean Wisconsin: $300 million is the Minimum for Great Lakes
But it might be a little less than necessary when it comes to cleaning up the Great Lakes. $350 million is how much president Obama's new budget has in it for lake clean-up. Actually, a 25 percent cut from funding last year. The group, Clean Wisconsin, is pushing for congress to approve at least $300 million for Great Lakes clean-up. Ezra Meyer, with the environmental group, says those hundreds of millions are really just a portion of the billions that is needed to do clean up of generations of industry, toxicity and invasive species in the lakes.
