The Michigan Chapter of REP America (Republicans for Environmental
Protection), proudly adds its
endorsement for the Clean Michigan Initiative.  The Clean Michigan
Initiative or CMI is a $675
million general obligation bond proposed by Governor Engler and passed the
Michigan Legislature
with bipartisan support.  The CMI will be on the November 3rd ballot for
voter approval.

The CMI will grant the following:  $335 million for Brownfield
Redevelopment and Environmental
Cleanup, $50 million for nonpoint source pollution control grants, $90
million for the Clean Water
Fund to protect and improve water quality, $25 million for cleanup of
contaminated sediments, $50
million for waterfront reclamation and revitalization, $50 million for
State Park Revitalization, $20
million for pollution prevention, $5 million for lead hazard control, and
$50 million to enhance local
parks & recreation opportunities.

Republicans for Environmental Protection-Michigan endorses the CMI because
it will benefit
Michigan with cleaner lakes, rivers, and streams. It will reduce urban
sprawl and the loss of farmland
and green space. It will also create jobs and opportunities to revitalize
our communities and enhance
local recreation opportunities.  The CMI will also give us better roads and
electrical, water, and sewer
systems in our state parks.  Most importantly, we feel it will promote
responsible resource stewardship
and protect public health and safety.
