President Trump has proposed cutting by 90 percent the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative

More than $2 billion has been budgeted for the Great Lakes initiative, for more than 2,000 projects, since it began in 2010.

U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher has come out against a proposed 90 percent cut in funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI). Portman says he and other lawmakers will work to get the funding restored.

Trump had proposed an even deeper cut to the program a year ago, but it survived. Members of Congress opted to fully fund the program for 2018. "Once again, we will gear up in a bipartisan manner, to save the Great Lakes funding." Sen. That's down from $167 million previous year.

There is a bi-partisan push back by Great Lakes leaders against Donald Trump's newly released budget and infrastructure proposals. "In all, it makes no sense". As the Free Pressnotes, the cuts were buried in one line in a 96-page budget without explanation - a move that Democratic Congressman Dan Kildee called "draconian".
