Asian carp summit early next month

Posted:

LANSING, MI (KWWL) -- The White House wants to hold a meeting with Great Lakes governors concerned about Asian carp invading the lakes.

The White House Council on Environmental Quality suggested Wednesday that the meeting be held the first week of February.

The governors of Michigan and Wisconsin requested the summit after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Michigan's request for a preliminary injunction to close the shipping locks near Chicago temporarily and work out a way to stop the carp.
