The Saginaw News headline story today ( not on line) is the same coverage with headlines reading:
Coal plants notch a win: Ruling may advance plant near Bay City.
The Saginaw News story identified Rep. Ken Horn of Saginaw County (R-94th) as one of the two legislators that took the issue to the attorney general. Rep Horn, married to the Vice Chair of the Saginaw County Chambers of Commerce, also never misses an opportunity to bash environmental regulation/MDEQ as an obstacle to "growth" and he has been an advocate of Dow Chemical's position to lower the state standard for dioxin exposure from 90 ppt to 1,000 ppt for residential properties. He also supported lifting the " facility designation" on contaminated river properties which would limit Dow's obligations to clean them up.
If the Chamber or Dow or Consumers wants it---Ken Horn wants it. Public health, Great Lakes water quality and natural resources be damned.
