Protect Our Great Lakes

This petition had 305 supporters

Trump has proposed budget cuts to major waterways in the United States. If the budget cuts go through, 59 million Americans will be impacted. Thirty percent of Canada's entire population will also be negatively affected. The Great Lakes alone will lose $300 million, changing the economic benefits for at least 8 states. The largest freshwater source in the world is about to lose $300 million, spent to make sure it stays clean, if we do not do something. Budget cuts will also take funding from Chesapeake Bay, Puget Sound, and the Gulf of Mexico. All of these major waterways are crucial to the economy of their surrounding environments. These natural wonders provide beauty for all to enjoy. If these budget cuts are allowed, the beauty will diminish because the waterways are not being cared for. Not only are we losing funding, but we are losing the ability to take our children to these amazing places. We are losing economic opportunities such as tourism, commercial fishing, etc. The budget cuts need to be stopped
