MADISON (WKOW)-- The White House plans to meet with Governor Doyle and Michigan's governor about how to prevent Asian carp from invading the Great Lakes.
The White House Council on Environmental Quality say the meeting will be held the first week in February.
Doyle and Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm requested a summit after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Michigan's request to shut down shipping locks near Chicago temporarily and work out a way to stop the carp.
"The question is how do we quickly get a solution, and that means immediately there has to be a stop of the carp coming in to Lake Michigan. That the only way to do that right now as far as I know is to shut down the locks," says Governor Jennifer Granholm.
DNA samples taken beyond the final barriers between Chicago-area waterways and Lake Michigan have tested positive for the aggressive fish.
