The Great Lakes Business Network today applauded Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s revocation of Enbridge Energy’s Line 5 operating easement following a comprehensive review by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
Enbridge is attempting to permit and build a tunnel under the Great Lakes to relocate its aging Line 5 oil and natural gas liquids pipeline. The pipeline tunnel would carry millions of gallons of climate-harming fossil fuels every day through our state for up to 99...
To make AG Nessel’s lawsuit against Line 5 as strong as possible, Gov. Whitmer should officially join the suit. Please contact the governor this week to encourage her to do so.
Business leaders and concerned citizens from across the political spectrum lobbied the Michigan Legislature on November 27 to convince them to halt the progress of the poorly conceived bill SB 1197 that would have the Mackinac Bridge Authority oversee an Enbridge oil tunnel in the Straits.
Gov. Snyder and Enbridge have hatched a hasty plan to rush a deal through the Michigan legislature that would force the Mackinac Bridge Authority to manage and own a crude oil tunnel for a private Canadia firm. Help stop this very bad idea.
Snyder’s hasty plan would tie the hands of future governors and force a complicated and ill-conceived oil pipeline tunnel on generations of Michiganders.
