Dear Honorable Senators and Honorable Representative,

Asian carp continue to swim toward our Great Lakes.  While short measures continue, I urge you to move forward with the long term, permanent solution needed to best protect our Lakes.  Our best shot at stopping this invasion is to move forward quickly with separation of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River waterways in the Chicago area.  As your constituent, I urge you to do your part to ensure this work is being done while these emergency short term measures continue.

Sincerely yours,
