TRAVERSE CITY (AP) – A member of Congress from Michigan says the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will not meet a legal deadline for completing a plan to preventing Asian carp from invading the Great Lakes.
Rep. Dave Camp said Friday the Corps had notified him of its decision. He said he plans to “hold the Corps accountable.”

President Barack Obama signed legislation in July sponsored by Camp and Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow that ordered the Corps to craft a plan for blocking Asian carp’s path into the Great Lakes through Chicago waterways and other possible entry points.

The law set a deadline of January 2014 for finishing the plan. Camp said the Corps intends only to release a list of options, which he called unacceptable.

Corps officials didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment.
