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 >>

 

Stop a Plan to Slam the Brakes on Renewable Energy

The House Energy Policy Committee is set to discuss a bill that would slam the brakes on our renewable energy standards. It would:

  1. Promote burning tires and hazardous waste and call it renewable energy
  2. Cap potential for creating more renewable energy in Michigan
  3. Eliminate Michigan’s highly successful energy efficiency programs
  4. Slam the brakes on truly clean, renewable energy in Michigan

Tell the House Energy Committee that burning hazardous waste is neither clean nor renewable, and it is definitely the wrong direction for Michigan >>

 

Energy Efficiency is Good Business for Michigan

The House Energy Committee just took up a bill to eliminate Michigan’s successful energy efficiency program.

Energy efficiency is all about eliminating wasted energy that you otherwise pay for on your electric bills.

Energy we don't use in the first place is the cheapest, cleanest form of energy we can use. Add your name to help stop a plan that would eliminate these hugely successful programs >>

 

Powering Michigan's Future Plan

New legislative plan calls for Michigan to meet 20% renewable energy standard by 2022. Show your support by adding your name! >>

 

Pure Michigan is more than an advertising campaign:

Michigan DEQ gives green light to continue importing radioactive fracking waste and dumping it here in Michigan, but they do not intend to hold a public hearing on the issue.

Tell the Michigan DEQ that Michiganders deserve a chance to speak out on this proposal — add your name to urge the DEQ to hold a public hearing >>

 

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

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

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.

 

Safer Chemicals, Safer Couches

Urge our Michigan Senators to support safer chemicals and smarter policies today! >>

US Senator Chuck Schumer (D - NY) introduced a bill that would ban the ten worst toxic flame retardants from use in upholstered furniture and children’s products, and allows the Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban similar chemicals shown to be hazardous.

These chemicals are not only dangerous to human health but are ineffective in preventing fires. In order to keep these flame retardants out of our water, our soil and our homes, it is high time we take action against these toxic chemicals.
