WASHINGTON, D.C. (KDAL) - Minnesota 8th District Congressman Rick Nolan is urging President Trump to reconsider his decision to suspend a study designed to keep Asian carp out of Lake Michigan.

Nolan says the suspension "jeopardizes numerous industries in Minnesota and Wisconsin including our nation's 7 billion dollar sport fishing market." 

In a letter to the President, Nolan says efforts to solve the problem is "mired in bureaucratic inaction" and further delays would increase the "likelihood of an irreversible inundation of this highly destructive invasive species." 

The letter to Trump was also signed by 11 other U-S Representatives.
