E-M:/ Senate Appropriations Subcommittees

Enviro-Mich message from anne.woiwode@sfsierra.sierraclub.org


As you all know, many of the decisions made by the legislator that effect the
environment occur in the appropriations process.  This year the Senate
Appropriations Committee has divided into two subcommittees the forums in
which issues affecting the environment will be heard -- what used to be the
Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs Subcommittee has become the
Subcommittee on Environmental Quality and the Subcommittee on Natural
Resources.  Senators Gast and DeBeaussaert serve on both, which offers some
hope of continuity between the two, but this continues the trend away from
coordination of these interwoven areas.

The Subcommittee memberships are below:

Environmental Quality: Loren Bennet, Chair; Harry Gast; Walter North; Alma
Wheeler Smith; Ken DeBeaussaert

Natural Resources: George McManus, Chair; Harry Gast; Phil Hoffman; Ken
DeBeaussaert; Don Koivisto
