Michigan legislature starts approval process for regional Great Lakes compact

The Canadian Press:
"The Michigan legislature on Wednesday began passing a regional compact to prevent Great Lakes water from being sent to thirsty regions.

But final approval isn't expected until January at the earliest because of disputes over related legislation involving large-scale water withdrawals from Michigan lakes and waterways.

The compact was approved by a Democratic-controlled House committee and Republican-led Senate panel."
