Great Lakes Today

President-elect Donald Trump's transition team is busy filling some 4,000 jobs in his new administration. For folks who are interested in the Great Lakes, three of those appointees are particularly important.

The U.S. has three seats on the six-member International Joint Commission, which works with the U.S. and Canada in regulating the lakes and other boundary waters. 

Great Lakes Today reporter Elizabeth Miller appeared on WVIZ/PBS program Ideas to discuss Heroes on Deck, a documentary about U.S. Navy pilots that trained on Lake Michigan during WWII.
