NPCA's Tom Martin explains need for new Great Lakes restoration effort

This week, a coalition of state, local and federal officials outlined a new plan to restore the Great Lakes by upgrading sewer systems, fighting invasive species and targeting toxic sediment. Tom Martin, executive vice president of the National Parks Conservation Association, joins OnPoint to explain what needs to happen for that plan to become a reality. He details the financial commitments that the Bush administration and Congress will need to make, plus a look at the work ahead for the U.S. EPA. Also, he explains how Great Lakes recovery is becoming an increasingly important political issue in the Midwest.
