Roundtable: MI Rep. Debbie Dingell hears from GLOS and other Great Lakes orgs.

Late last month, Rep. Debbie Dingell of Michigan's 12th district, sat down with us and leaders from Great Lakes conservation, research, and environmental organizations to hear their top concerns.

The meeting, which took place at NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (GLERL) in Ann Arbor, gave the attendees the chance to individually present to the congresswoman, and then field her questions. 

The group was made up of representatives from GLOS, NOAA, Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research, U.S. Geological Survey, Great Lakes Commission, Great Lakes Fishery Commission, Healing our Waters Great Lakes Coalition, League of Conservation Voters, Ducks Unlimited, National Wildlife Federation, and the Sierra Club.
