Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti has taken an up close and personal look at the state's Asian Carp problem. She boarded fishing boats along with Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Bill Foster Monday in Joliet Monday. She's impressed with efforts to reduce the ranks of the invasive fish.
Sanguinetti says there is progress in making use of the unwanted fish.
Since 2012, Illinois Natural Resources officials have partnered with commercial fishermen to remove more than 6.3 million pounds of the carp from the Upper Illinois waterway.
