The Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing tomorrow (July 30) on Senate Joint Resolution 45, giving Congressional consent and approval to the Great Lakes compact. Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) will preside over the hearing. I was invited to submit written testimony in advance of the hearing. My testimony strongly supports S.J. Res. 45 and provides: (1) an overview of managing water resources with interstate compacts in the United States; (2) background on the existing policies and laws regarding interstate Great Lakes water management; and (3) a summary and analysis of the key provisions of the Great Lakes compact. It’s not short, but I wanted to prepare a comprehensive and useful resource for Senators as they consider this important issue.
