E-M:/ Discussion on Michigan Liberal -- Question of the Hour -- CAFO issue

This user on Michigan Liberal has the question of the hour.....

this will be Dems test ( 0.00 / 0)
Everyone should watch how the House leadership handles this issue.  There's no question--absolutely none--that the CAFOs bills passed by the Republican-controlled Senate with Dem Barcia's support will put Michigan's waters at tremendous risk of more pollution.  What is driving this is the immense power of corporate industrial agriculture and their lobbying arm, the Farm Bureau.  All the Farm Bureau needs to do is put together enough Dem votes to join the Republican minority, which is apt to be lockstep behind their corporate benefactors.  What will Speaker Dillon do?  What will Leader Tobocman do?
