E-M:/ Granholm's intervention in Nestle Waters case

Dear Friend,
The Michigan Land Use Institute just posted an article on how Governor 
Jennifer M. Granholm came to her decision to intervene in the Nestle Waters 
case and what it means. Until last week, the Institute reports, nothing 
that the Democratic governor did resembled the closed-door style of former 
Governor John Engler. Then Ms. Granholm  did something that 
environmentalists called surprisingly Engleresque: Shutting out a feisty 
citizens group she once supported and aiding the world's largest food 
company in a David and Goliath legal struggle that affects all of Michigan. 
The issue: The security of the state's treasure trove of fresh water. The 
consequence: an erosion of trust in a progressive community the governor 
can ill afford to lose.

	Have a great holiday season. Yours, Keith Schneider, deputy director, 
Michigan Land Use Institute
