Our View: Aquatic pest money will be well spent

…This $800,000 is a tiny part of the overall state budget, but it’s also something that could have easily been taken out, if it had been seen as some sort of pork spending by people in parts of the state where aquatic invasive species aren’t on the top of the priority list. But people in this area are right to be concerned. Hydrilla can quickly spread to other lakes when small pieces stuck to boats and propellers get transported from place to place as boaters explore new waterways. It has a very real potential to infest all of the Finger Lakes if something isn’t done to prevent that from happening.
