Congress cracking down on Asian carp


Tonawanda News —

“If Congress had acted sooner to reform outdated rules and regulations, we would not be spending tens of millions of dollars a year to keep the carp out of the Great Lakes,” Slaughter said. “The Invasive Fish and Wildlife Prevention Act would prevent the import of harmful, non-native fish, wildlife, and wildlife diseases. It is an important step forward to better protect this country from the damage that comes from invasive species.”

Since 2005, Slaughter has been the Co-Chair of the bipartisan Great Lakes Task Force.
