Folks:

Keep a close eye on bills in the legislature this year -- the first "huh?"
comes with the assigning of Sen. Schuette's bill on oil and gas development
under the Great Lakes (SB 28) to the Economic Development, International Trade
and Regulatory Affairs Committee.  Sen. Schuette chairs this committee, but
this assignment is certainty counterintuitive. It is troubling to think that
issues which CLEARLY relate to environmental protection and natural resources
are going to be assigned to committees which on their face have no bearing on
the environment, or at least no positive bearing.
