Minnesota joins fight against Asian carp

Email

Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson asked the U.S. Supreme Court Monday to order Illinois to shut down a canal system that could allow Asian carp to enter the Great Lakes.

Swanson's action thrusts Minnesota into the legal battle initiated last week by Michigan asking the U.S. Supreme Court to immediately order federal, state and local officials responsible for Chicago-area locks and waterways to take action to keep Asian carp out of the Great Lakes.
