Federal environmental regulators are seeking input on their latest plan to guide restoration and protection of the Great Lakes under an Obama-era cleanup program.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and partners are developing an updated action plan that will guide work under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, or GLRI, from 2025 to 2029.

Wisconsin had received more than $650 million through the program as of earlier this year.
