Enviro-Mich message from mienvcouncil@igc.apc.org (dave dempsey)

The trial judge in the Genesee Power Station case, Archie Hayman, clarified
today that his injunction against the DEQ's air permit program has effect
only in Genesee County, the boundary of his authority.  This should, at
least, mute the rantings of the DEQ about the statewide chilling effect on
"job providers." At the same time, the benefits of his ruling -- revised
permit review procedures and a public participation process that has
meaning -- should apply statewide, unless the DEQ complies with the judge's
order by designing one process for Genesee County and leaves another for
the rest of the state.
