Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has filed a protest to the federal government's latest report on ways to stop a Great Lakes invasion of Asian carp.
Schuette knocks the report as "incomplete" and lacking any "concrete plan of action." In January, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers offered eight ways to block migration of Asian carp between the Great Lakes and Mississippi River watersheds.
Some would cost billions of dollars and take decades to complete. Schuette said Tuesday there seems to be no sense of urgency. Similar criticism has come from members of Congress.
Schuette wants to see barriers between Lake Michigan and the Chicago River waterways. The Army Corps has said any additional action depends on direction from Congress.
