Congresswoman Miller Upset By Federal Appeals Court Asian Carp Lawsuit Ruling



A suburban Detroit congresswoman is sounding off against a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago regarding Asian carp. Congresswoman Candice Miller wants bills passed to require the Chicago River system to be cut off from Lake Michigan.

Listen:



The federal appellate court has upheld a lower court ruling that dismisses a lawsuit filed by Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to require that the Army Corps of Engineers separate the Mississippi watershed from Lake Michigan.

Listen:



To date, Asian carp have not been found in Lake Michigan or any of the other Great Lakes. here is no evidence suggesting the invasive fish have reached the open waters of the Great Lakes. The lawsuit claimed the Army Corps of Engineers and Chicago's Metropolitan Water Reclamation District are causing a public nuisance by failing to prevent an invasion by not separating the Chicago system from the lake.
