The discovery of Asian carp beyond an electrical barrier in Chicago has caught the attention of legislators from across the Great Lakes region. The Asian carp is considered to be a highly destructive invasive species for the Great Lakes and has drawn the efforts of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers along with local, state, and federal officials. Senator Tammy Baldwin says the discovery is even more of a reason for the Trump Administration to release the findings of the Brandon Road Study, named after the location of a possible kill zone near Joliet, Ill., so they know what they need to do to fight back.
Senator Baldwin says she has bipartisan support for the Stop Asian Carp Now Act, which would require the Trump Administration to release the study with seven days of its enactment.
