The deal to head off a government shutdown this weekend includes hundreds of millions of dollars for the Great Lakes and drinking water systems. Ohio’s Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown says the bill is a good step, but broader investment is needed.

The compromise includes $170 million for Flint and $300 million a year for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. Brown says investments in infrastructure should be a given.
