Say NO to a Plan to Exempt Michigan Pipelines from Public Scrutiny 

That means that you and your neighbors won't have access to safety records, data on pipeline corrosion and leaks, condition of wells, and rate and outcome of inspections.

Will you join us in speaking out against this blatant attack on your right to know what is happening in your own backyard?

Contact your State Representative and urge him or her to oppose this bill >>

Don't let the lights go out on Michigan's renewable energy

Believe it or not, plans to eliminate our renewable energy standards and phase out our energy efficiency programs are gaining traction.

Without a critical mass of Michigan LCV members signed on in support of truly clean, renewable energy and more of it in Michigan, those bad plans could become state law.

Let's set the story straight --- that Michiganders want to see a plan to power our homes and businesses that invests in clean, affordable and reliable energy sources. Because we care about reducing pollution in the Great Lakes, in the air we breathe and because we believe in the continued success of our clean energy economy.

Will you add your name in support of clean energy today? >>

Yes!

TELL THE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY THAT WE NEED REAL SOLUTIONS FOR LAKE ERIE

The plan drafted by the MDEQ is a missed opportunity to find real solutions that will protect our Great Lakes and improve water quality throughout Michigan.

Join us in urging the Michigan DEQ to find REAL solutions for toxic algae in Lake Erie.

Will you join us in telling the DEQ that now is not the time for business as usual? >>

For more information on how the plan falls short, check out Michigan LCV's official comments here.

SUPPORT THE CLEAN POWER PLAN

In a historic move, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized the Clean Power Plan — setting the first-ever limits on carbon pollution. The Clean Power Plan will better protect our clean air and water, and it's our best shot at tackling climate change. But, it will be up to each state to determine how to achieve it. Governor Snyder's leadership will be critical to ensuring Michigan moves toward a cleaner future.

After more than 1,200 Michigan LCV members spoke out, Governor Snyder announced in early September that Michigan will embrace the Clean Power Plan!

Will you join us in thanking Governor Snyder for supporting clean air and clean water by enacting the Clean Power Plan here in Michigan? >>

Take Action for the Great Lakes

New report released by the Snyder Administration lays out 30-year vision for how to improve protections for the Great Lakes and Michigan's clean water. The Governor will be hearing from business interests and stakeholders over the rest of this summer, but the person he needs to hear from most is you!

Tell Governor Snyder to continue prioritizing protections for our Great Lakes >>

Stop House Bill 4246 — One Size Does Not Fit All In Michigan

New bill would forbid Michigan from creating regulations stronger than the federal government's.

Tell the House Regulatory Committee that one-size-fits-all is not good enough for Michigan's natural resources >>

 

2014 Lame Duck Scorecard

Last year’s Lame Duck session illustrated how quickly bills that waged serious attacks on Michigan’s land, air and water can move in the final weeks of the year. And while Michigan LCV was able to work together with thousands of member to put a stop to some of the worst policies, others are now on the books. 

We must apply that same kind of pressure on the issues we care about this year. Share the 2014 Lame Duck Scorecard with your elected officials to let them know you’re keeping score.

Show your elected officials that you're keeping score, and urge them to make conservation a priority in the years ahead >>
