Great Lakes water protection agreement advances
The proposed Great Lakes water protection agreement keeps moving forward.
Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland signed it Friday.
Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm says she'll sign the agreement, after her Legislature passed it last week as part of a water use package.
Wisconsin lawmakers and Gov. Jim Doyle OK'd it a few weeks ago.
It stops dry places like Phoenix from stealing Great Lakes water while making it easier for nearby communities like Waukesha to tap in.
