Michigan:  The following consent decree does not mention Wal-Mart stores in Michigan specifically - however, the final result will affect us as there are always new Wal-Marts being built here.  They are now required to implement an environmental management plan at future construction sites.  Like the one at Jennings Road north of Owen Road in the City of Fenton.  Lets watch and see what happens, huh?

"Under the terms of the Consent Decree, the Settling Defendants have 
agreed to pay a civil penalty of $1.0 million and Wal-Mart has agreed 
to implement an environmental management plan at future construction 
sites."

See below for the rest........-Rita Jack.
