LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Democratic governors of Michigan and Wisconsin are
calling on the White House to hold a summit on what to do about the threat
of Asian carp entering the Great Lakes.
Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm said Tuesday that she and Wisconsin Gov. Jim
Doyle are calling for an “immediate” summit at the White House with the
Great Lakes governors to hammer out a solution.
The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.
Earlier in the day, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to order the immediate
closure of shipping locks near Chicago to stop the carp from entering the
Michigan had asked the court for a preliminary injunction to close the locks
temporarily while a long-term solution was being hammered out.
