E-M:/ drain code moves to floor

Enviro-Mich message from Julie Stoneman <juliemec@voyager.net>

After the House adjourned for deer hunting Wednesday night around 8:00 pm, 
the House Ag Committee met, debated dozens of amendments, and voted out HB
4803, the drain code bill, at around 11:00 pm.  The bill now moves to the
House floor where its expected to see action in order to move it to the
Senate before Christmas.

And it's far from ready.  The changes made Wednesday night were not
sufficient to change MEC's position on the bill--it has a long way to go
before it truly is the reform needed to bring the antiquated code into the
21st century.  

More on this very soon. . .
