Press Release

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Representative Elissa Slotkin (MI-08) released the following statement Monday in response to the proposed cuts to the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative in the requested budget President Trump released today: 

“I’m still going through the President’s budget, but one area of disappointment is the proposed 90 percent cut to the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, Slotkin said. "In Michigan, protecting our Great Lakes is a bipartisan issue — because it's about our economy and our way of life. I will be working with my Michigan colleagues on both sides of the aisle to stop these cuts.”
