In the news: Asian carp discussion moves to Washington

From the Chicago Tribune:
Midwest governors are scheduled to visit the White House today to meet with top presidential environmental adviser Nancy Sutley on how to keep Asian carp from invading the Great Lakes.

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn will participate but not in person because of the snowstorm that has made travel to Washington difficult. He will participate by phone. Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle are still expected to be there.

A "framework" agreement is expected to be released at 2 p.m. Chicago time. The summit takes place behind closed doors, but the governors in Washington will hold a press conference afterward. Read more.
