E-M:/ lakes threatened, but state provides no help

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

Last week, the Legislature failed to approve money to help clean up Lake
St. Clair before adjourning for the summer.

Today's Detroit News carries articles about the resulting outrage in Macomb
County, as well as pollution problems threatening other water bodies in SE
Michigan.

The public may want to remind lawmakers of this in the fall when they
return to decide how to spend $90 million in clean water money from the
1998 environmental bond proposal.
