Michigan Legal Victory Show Wisconsin Can Help Keep Ruinous Pests Out Of The Great Lakes

A federal court ruling upheld Michigan's new law strongly regulating ocean-going ships, and preventing them from releasing invasive species into the Great Lakes.

Invasive species cost all the Great Lakes states' economies; Michigan, tired of waiting for federal controls, went ahead with its own legislation, and its right to take action has now been ruled legal.

This should encourage Wisconsin legislators of both parties to press for similar legislation.
