Kaptur announces release of Brandon Road Study
July 28, 2017
Washington, D.C. -- Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-09), Co-Chair of the House Great Lakes Task Force, released the following statement after being informed that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will release the Brandon Road Study, which details options for how to prevent the Asian carp from reaching the Great Lakes:
"I am pleased that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is finally taking this study off the shelf so we can address the urgent issue of Asian carp coming into our Great Lakes. The Brandon Road Study is but one of many important steps to ensure we are doing all we can to protect our Lakes from this voracious predator."
The study will be released on August 7, 2017.
Kaptur has been leading the charge for the U.S. Army Corps to release the Brandon Road Study and introduced the Stop Asian Carp Now Act to force the release of the study, which has been needlessly delayed by the Administration since the original release date of February 28, 2017.
