E-M:/ Senator Stabenow's petition to EPA on importing trash

Title: Message
There has been some reporting about the petition being circulated by Senator Stabenow asking the EPA to do more to stop trash shipments from Canada by enforcing an existing treaty.  The link to the petition page is below. Reportedly, Senator Stabenow's office already has 9,000 signatories to the petition! 


ONE VERY IMPORTANT THING -- Even if the Feds take appropriate action, the state of Michigan MUST also address waste issues -- from tipping fees to solid waste planning to laws at the state level that will control these items.  Legislation that is currently under consideration and debate at the Legislature NEEDS YOUR ACTION AND SUPPORT as well -- go to www.stoptrash.org to keep up on these efforts.
