It was last minute, but groups partnering with Illinois to prevent invasive carp from getting into Lake Michigan will take it.
On July 1 – the given deadline –  it was announced that Illinois had signed a partnership agreement that will allow construction of the $1.15 billion Brandon Road Interbasin Project. The announcement came after weeks and weeks of pleading by neighboring states and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for Gov. J.B. Pritzker to adhere to a June 30 deadline so that $274 million in federal funds wouldn’t be lost.
