Lansing, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – State Senator Tom Casperson is praising a measure adopted by Ohio lawmakers calling for the U.S. government to upgrade the Soo Locks.

Casperson has joined other Michigan Senators in applauding the Ohio House of Representatives’ resolution urging the President and Congress to upgrade the locks, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to proceed with preparing an economic reevaluation report.

The measure is similar to one adopted by the Michigan Senate last November.

Casperson, who chairs the State Senate Transportation Committee, says legislators in neighboring Great Lakes states Wisconsin and Minnesota should also adopt Soo Locks resolutions.

The Escanaba Republican says adopting the resolutions in a joint effort is critical to moving the process of upgrading the locks forward.
