Of course they are. And Illinois should sue to shut down the St. Lawrence Seaway because of all the non-native species that came in that way.
Some of the ideas that the states want to impose on Illinois are not as draconian as what they originally wanted to do: Permanently cement up every connection between Lake Michigan and the Illinois Waterway, which is important infrastructure.
Apparently, though, they haven't given up on the idea. One of the steps that the other states want to impose on Illinois includes the acceleration of "efforts to complete a feasibility study of a permanent hydrological separation of the Great Lakes Basin from the Mississippi River within the next 18 months, with reports at six and 12 months."
Another government study.
