Good news from D.C. as the Senate just approved the Great Lakes Compact, which is supported by the Indiana Chamber. The eight-state agreement is designed to keep Great Lakes water in the region and protect this valuable natural resource.
Now the measure will head to Congress, where it will be voted on following the five-week Congressional break. No "School House Rock" video is yet available of the compact waiting for the House to return. However, it may go something like this:
"I’m just a waitin’
But they’re on a vacation
So I’m stuck here on Capitol Hilllllllll
I’d love to be a law
For Erie, Gary and Saginaw
But for now I’m just a lonely old billllllll."
Note: Ok, it’s technically a joint resolution and not a bill, but that’s a much harder rhyme to pull off.
