Brown-Sponsored Legislation To Stop Asian Carp Passes Congress: Stop Invasive Species Act, Cosponsored by Sen. Brown, Now Poised to Become Law; Bill Requires Action on Permanent Solutions to Stop Asian Carp (Jun 29, 2012)
U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown.
Bipartisan legislation to stop Asian carp from destroying the Great Lakes' ecosystem has passed both houses of Congress and is now poised to become law. The Stop Invasive Species Act, of which Brown was an original cosponsor, would require the expedited creation of a plan to block Asian carp from entering the Great Lakes through a number of rivers and tributaries across the Great Lakes region.
