INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mitch Daniels has signed a measure that allows Indiana to join a regional compact intended to prevent water-hungry states from tapping into the Great Lakes.The General Assembly had approved the bill that protects water from being siphoned out of the Great Lakes watershed to drought-stricken states or areas that need water to continue their growth.
"Indiana is the first state to reach this point and we ought to take
some satisfaction in that," said Daniels at a Wednesday press
conference where he signed the bill.
Daniels said Indiana was the first among the eight states bordering the five Great Lakes to sign the measure into law. Indiana encompasses parts of both the Lake Michigan and Lake Erie watersheds.
