That has members of Congress from the Great Lakes states searching for ways to force the Army Corps of Engineers to release the report.

Republican Congressman Bill Huizenga joined Stateside today. He co-chairs the Great Lakes Task Force and is among the lawmakers pushing to get this Asian carp study released.
