E-M:/ Engler's water "board"

True to form, Engler is going to create a board to deal 
with water matters, but it apparently won't have any 
authority..... 

See

http://www.freep.com/news/mich/qwater23.htm

It was the fact that groups like the Air Pollution Control
Commission and Water Resources Commission had
important authority over permits and enforcement consent
orders that made them effective.

It was Engler's move to destroy citizen volunteer commission 
governance on natural resources and environmental 
protection, and to ignore citizens concerns on 
these matters,  which has been the most pernicious and 
pathological trait of his administration and the one 
action that has done more long term damage than  
anything else.

What Engler wants now is something, anything...to 
divert criticism away from his failings as the worst
Michigan governor in 60 years on environmental protection
and conservation......The modern day equivalent of the 
biblical "bad steward" for Michigan's environment
and resources.
