Thanks to everyone who attended this year's Great Lakes Legislative Caucus meeting in Québec City, Québec. The event attracted legislators from each of the basin's eight Great Lakes states and two Canadian provinces. Special thanks, too, to members of the National Assembly of Québec for hosting the event. The caucus is planning to next meet Sept. 25-26, 2015, in Buffalo, N.Y.
The Great Lakes Legislative Caucus held its third in-state training session on Great Lakes policy on April 29, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The event featured three expert speakers will explored strategies to prevent the interbasin transfer of invasive species such as Asian carp and who presented ideas to improve wastewater and stormwater management. Attendees will gained perspective on the environmental and economic significance of the Great Lakes to the state of Illinois.
