E-M:/ SB 252 debate

Enviro-Mich message from Andrew Mutch <andrewimutch@yahoo.com>

The Grand Traverse Record Eagle exposes the truth on
the legislature's shenanigans with SB 252. By the way,
the Record Eagle has weighed in on some other hot
topics of the day recently including the Manistee Coal
plant proposal. I don't know who does the editorials
up in that part of the state but they are doing a
great job covering the environmental issues discussed

Andrew Mutch 

Rule-making demands really just a power grab 

"To justify an attempt to hijack Department of
Environmental Quality rule-making authority, Senate
Majority Leader Ken Sikkema last week pontificated
that it would be "irresponsible" for Republicans to do
anything less.

It would have been amusing to see Sikkema try that
same line on Gov. John Engler. 

Presumably, legislators had just as much of a
"responsibility" to control DEQ rule-making then as
they say they do now. But not a one of them would have
put his political career on the line by trying to
strip the Engler administration of that authority."
