Schumer calls for federal invasive species action

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, N.Y. -

New York Senator Chuck Schumer wants the federal government to take a serious look at invasive species.

Schumer's proposal would create a rapid response team to strike back against invasive species around the country, including those threatening New York waters.

Asian clams, milfoil and other species can damage native species in lakes when they're brought in on boats. Schumer says that puts the state's tourism industry at risk.
