E-M:/ Lakes drilling stance disputed

U.S. Rep. Rogers says his votes show he backs state controls over Great Lakes.
Environmental advocates are taking U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Brighton, to task for accepting campaign contributions from energy companies while opposing a permanent federal ban against drilling along the shorelines of the Great Lakes.
Rogers accepted $28,300 for his 2004 re-election from the oil and gas industry, more than any other member of the state's congressional delegation, they say.
