Committees will hear from various experts including advisors from the Department of Natural Resources. The meeting will include the results from the Great Lakes Mississippi River Interbasin Study performed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The study addresses solutions to the Asian Carp problem.

The Committees will meet at Noon in the House Appropriations Committee room in the Capitol.
