MI House Passes Bills to Further Protect the Great Lakes

This last week, the State House passed four bills related to the Line 5 pipeline and protection of the Great Lakes. The bills would prohibit anchoring in the straits, install signage warning boaters of the ban and establish sentencing guidelines for violations. The bills also would extend whistleblower protections to people who report boaters who violate the no-anchor zone. These bills passed the house the same day the State announced a second agreement with Enbridge that would allow for the the construction of a tunnel beneath the straits to house a replacement for the Line 5 section there.
