Congressman John Molenaar (R-MI)
Thanks to Congressman John Moolenaar’s (R-MI) leadership, the linchpin of the Great Lakes Navigation System and the nation’s economy, a new large navigational lock in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, is under construction. Congressman Moolenaar has actively advocated for the Great Lakes Navigation System and continues to protect the Great Lakes and the mariners that ply the waters. He was instrumental in increasing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers funding for the Great Lakes, securing a substantial share of the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund for the system’s operation and maintenance. Congressman Moolenaar has been a staunch supporter of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), putting the protection of our waters at the top of the list.
