E-M:/ update on out-of-state waste bill



-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enviro-Mich message from Dave Dempsey <davemec@voyager.net>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The State Senate has temporarily passed on S.B. 4, which limits out of
state waste.  It's expected the Senate will remain in session until after
midnight tonight.  Three Senators may be key in whether the bill gets a
vote before the Senate adjourns for the year later tonight or tomorrow
morning:

Sen. Dan DeGrow, Majority Floor Leader, e-mail:  senddegrow@senate.state.mi.us

Sen. Michael Bouchard, supporter of out-of-state waste restrictions,
senmbouchard@senate.state.mi.us

Sen. Loren Bennett, sponsor of S.B. 4, senlbennett@senate.state.mi.us

If you want information on how to contact your own Senator, check:

Remember, if S.B. 4 is not approved by the Senate tonight, it dies and must
be reintroduced next year and begin working its way again through the
legislative process.
