Rep. Slaughter Continues to Work on Preserving the Future of Great Lakes Region

Rep. Louise M. Slaughter (D-Fairport), Ranking Member of the House Rules Committee, joined the president of SUNY Brockport, Dr. John R. Halstead, and Dr. Joseph Makarewicz, the Director of Brockport’s Environmental Science and Biology Department, at an event celebrating the University’s planned Great Lakes center. The Congresswoman also took a tour of Brockport’s environmental science and biology facilities, and discussed her continued work on behalf of the Great Lakes region.

“We owe it to ourselves and to future generations to save this national treasure,” Rep. Slaughter said. “I’ve worked to get funding for Brockport’s Great Lakes center because it is going to be at the front lines of the fight to save Lake Ontario and the environment of our entire region.”

“The commitment shown locally by the citizens of Western New York must be met by an equal federal commitment to solving this problem,” Rep. Slaughter continued. “President Bush commissioned a study, and now he has to fund its recommendations in full.”

“The people with the most direct connection to our Great Lakes know that the health of this resource should be a national priority,” Rep. Slaughter said. “I will continue using my position as Co-Chair of the Great Lakes Task Force to ensure that the President gets the message.”
