Protect Michigan's Great Lakes - Vote NO on HB 4246

Lake Michigan
Michigan is surrounded by twenty percent of the earth's fresh surface water supply. But House Bill 4246 would weaken protection for the Great Lakes and all aspects of Michigan’s environment. 
This bill would prohibit the Governor and his/her agencies from issuing any rule that is more stringent than federal law. In effect it says there is nothing special about Michigan compared with any other state in the union and takes away the Governor's power to protect clean air and water.

Complete the form below in order to send a letter to your lawmakers asking them to vote NO on House Bill 4246!

Ask Lawmakers to Move Forward for Clean Energy

Michigan residents should be entitled to clean air to breathe, clean water to drink and affordable electricity. Depending on dirty fossil fuel energy sources like coal threatens the air we breathe and our Great Lakes, rivers and streams. In addition to harming our health, coal-generated electricity is expensive—coming in at almost twice the cost of recent wind contracts.  Clean energy such as wind, solar and energy efficiency are the solution to these problems.

Tell Legislators: Protect Our Water From Fracking!

Stop Fracking with our Water

Fracking is a growing practice used in drilling for natural gas that threatens Michigan's water and air.Fracking has caused thousands of incidents of environmental contamination across the country.

Michigan can't afford to get this one wrong. Half of Michigan residents get their drinking water from groundwater wells.  Tens of billions of dollars a year are pumped into the economy by water-dependent industries like fishing, boating and tourism, and countless jobs would be lost if our waters were contaminated.

Even though fracking practices have evolved significantly and become much more dangerous, our laws and safeguards have failed to keep up. As stewards of one-fifth of the world’s fresh surface water, we must act to protect its water resources and our Pure Michigan legacy.

Urge your State legislators to pass legislation to stop fracking and to update our weak environmental protections!
