Gov. Rick Snyder issued the following statement regarding the release of the Army Corps of Engineers plan for the Brandon Road Lock and Dam:

"The release of the Army Corps of Engineers plan for Brandon Road Lock and Dam marks a critically important step forward in the fight to protect our Great Lakes from invasive carp. The plan lays out important steps that must be taken to stop the relentless advance of silver and bighead carp toward Lake Michigan. It is time for all the Great Lakes states and Canadian provinces -- and all who care about the lakes -- to come together to demand action at Brandon Road Lock and Dam, a critical pinch point for stopping invasive carp. These harmful invaders are advancing toward the Great Lakes at an alarming rate and we cannot wait any longer to take immediate, decisive action."
