Re: E-M:/ Registration Deadline Friday for Conservation Conference

I hope the Saginaw Chamber is not attending.  They are trying to eliminate the DEQ altogether in Dow's dioxin clean-up.   Sweet.

Chamber of Commerce asks DEQ to be removed in dioxin negotiations

Chamber believes leaked letter about Dow was no accident

By Terry Camp SAGINAW (WJRT)

 -- (12/21/07)--The Saginaw Chamber of Commerce is asking the Department of Environmental Quality to be removed from negotiations in the Dow Chemical dioxin cleanup process.

It's also calling for an investigation into an accidentally leaked government memo, which was critical of Dow. The Saginaw County Chamber plans on forming a coalition to lobby the removal of the DEQ from the dioxin issue, and it believes the leaked memo was no accident.

The letter is in the mail to other chamber of commerce organizations across the state, asking them to join the Coalition for Reasonable Regulations. The plan is to lobby Gov. Jennifer Granholm and legislators to remove the Department of Environmental Quality from the dioxin negotiating process.
