E-M:/ Weird GOP-Dem Trash Trip

Enviro-Mich message from David Holtz <dholtz@cleanwater.org>

A story in today's Bay City Times says Ann Arbor Democrat and 
environmental champ Chris Kolb is joining ardent DEQ hater, Livonia 
Republican John Pastor, on a bipartisan trip to Toronto to explore 
"turning imported Toronto trash into coal", possibly using technology at 
a Saginaw firm.  I thought we were trying to keep Toronto trash out of 
Michigan?   According to the Times report, Kolb and Pastor are being 
joined on this trip by Craig DeRoche, R-Novi; Bill Huizenga, R-Zeeland; 
Daniel Acciavatti, R-Chesterfield; Ruth Johnson, R-Holly; Chris Kolb, 
Tupac Hunter, D-Detroit; and Bill McConico, D-Detroit and Joseph Rivet, 
D-Bay City.

Anyone know what's up with this? Is there some deal in the works on 
imported trash?
