U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, D-MI, and U.S. Rep. Candice Miller, R-MI, have introduced legislation that addresses the threat of Asian carp entering the Great Lakes.

The Defending Our Great Lakes Act would allow the Army Corps of Engineers to take immediate actions to stop the spread of invasive species between the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins.

"This is really the final step in giving them the authority to do what they need to do to stop the Asian carp," Stabenow said.
