Russ Harding, senior environmental policy analyst and director of the Property Rights Network at the Center, will take part in a live chat hosted by The Grand Rapids Press at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 23 (see grey box in Press story titled "Michigan 10.0" for details). The talk will be about how Michigan can best use its natural resources to drive economic recovery.

Harding also writes in this Grand Rapids Press commentary why federal budget earmarks, better known as "pork," for the Great Lakes are both "bad fiscal policy and poor environmental policy."

Harding points out, for example, that only 15 percent of the money is to be spent on controlling exotic species and most of that would go toward programs such as "developing markets for Asian carp. We do not need a market for Asian carp; we need to stop them from invading the Great Lakes."
