E-M:/ another key house committee on environment

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

In addition to the committees earlier listed by Joy Strawser, the House
Local Government and Urban Affairs Committee may play a significant role in
urban redevelopment and smart growth issues.  The chair of the committee is
Rep. Patricia Birkholz, a long-time conservationist.  Other members include
Reps. Hager (Vice-Chair), Bishop, DeWeese, Julian, Tabor, VanderRoest,
Lockwood (Minority Vice-Chair), Jamnick, Minore, and Lipsey-Reeves.

We have also learned that Sen. John Cherry will not serve on the Senate
Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs Committee as previously
reported.  Its membership includes: Sen. Ken Sikkema (Chair) and Sens.
Harry Gast, Mat Dunaskiss, Gary Peters, and Joe Young, Jr.
