ANN ARBOR (WKZO) -- Senator Debbie Stabenow will be at a public meeting in Ann Arbor Tuesday to urge the Army Corps of Engineers to come up with a fully developed plan to keep Asian carp out of the Great Lakes.  Stabenow says that Asian carp pose a serious threat to Michigan’s 16-billion dollar boating and seven-billion dollar fishing industries.

The meeting follows last week’s release of a report by the Army Corps on ideas to stop the Asian carp from entering the Great Lakes, although, according to the senator, none of the proposals is developed enough for work to actually begin.
