The following brief newsbrief was on the Detroit Free Press web site:

"State's leaders meet with Gore

Vice President Al Gore met Monday in Washington with environmental and
religious leaders from Michigan who want the White House to focus federal
resources on revamping inner cities.

They also want to see a slowing in the spread of suburban sprawl into
agricultural farmlands.

Lana Pollack, president of the Michigan Environmental Council, said about 20
Michiganders were at the meeting. Most were religious leaders from the
Metropolitan Organizing Strategy Enabling Strength, a group of 53 Detroit
area churches."
