WASHINGTON (WKZO) -- The U.S. Senate has approved the Water Resources Development Act, which includes money for dredging projects in the Great Lakes and nationwide.

Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow issued a joint statement praising the bill's passage, which authorizes spending one-billion dollars from the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund in fiscal year 2014.  It also sets aside 20-percent of authorized harbor maintenance funds above 2012 levels for projects in the Great Lakes.

The bill is now before the U.S. House.
