McCain-Great Lakes
(2008-07-11)
(wgvu) - Republican presidential candidate John McCain says Michigan and other Great Lakes states are right to protect their water from dry regions such as his home state of Arizona.

McCain tells The Associated Press in an interview after a campaign stop yesterday that he supports the Great Lakes compact. Michigan on Wednesday became the last of the eight states involved to join the compact when Governor Jennifer Granholm signed the compact bill into law.

McCain says he can't envision a scenario in which Great Lakes water would be shipped elsewhere. He says decisions on how the water should be used should be made by the states surrounding the Great Lakes.

The pact still needs approval of Congress and the White House.
