At the end of each month, we check in with Great Lakes commentator and journalist Gary Wilson for updates on environmental stories from around the basin.  

For today’s Great Lakes Month in Review we’re focusing on the Council of Great Lakes Governors summit, which took place in Chicago this past weekend. Wilson had the opportunity for a one-on-one interview with Governor Rick Snyder.Wilson says the purpose of the Council is to look at regional economic development and sustainability. When he sat down with Snyder, they spoke about Asian carp barriers, the Straits of Mackinac pipeline, and petroleum storage.
