Michigan LCV applauds Whitmer’s continued commitment to water

LANSING – The Michigan League of Conservation Voters today issued the following statement in response to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signing a new executive order to create the Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy to better protect Michigan’s water.

“We applaud Gov. Whitmer for demonstrating her continued commitment to the health of Michiganders by putting safe, affordable drinking water and public health at the forefront of her agenda,” said Lisa Wozniak, executive director at the Michigan League of Conservation Voters. “We urge the state Legislature to support this common-sense reorganization that puts public health first and not quibble over unnecessary layers of bureaucracy that will only delay, block or slow down real contamination clean up efforts.”
