MI Water MI Future Virtual Town Hall: No Stricter Than Federal

MI Water MI Future Michigan Virtual Town Hall - No Stricter Than Federal

Join us for the 2nd virtual town hall in our #MIWaterMIFuture series at 7 PM on Thursday, May 14th!

In late 2018 the Michigan legislature passed HB 4205. Nicknamed “No Stricter Than Federal”, this bill prohibited state agencies from adopting or creating rules that are stricter than federal standards unless exceptional circumstances could be demonstrated. 

As the Trump administration has continued to roll back environmental regulations and attacks on the Clean Water Act, the need for states – particularly Michigan with our unique water resources and Great Lakes - to retain the right to respond to our challenges is essential.  

Join Clean Water Action, State Representative Laurie Pohutsky, and an impressive group of panelists to learn about Michigan's current regulatory environment, the impacts of this legislation, and efforts in Michigan to repeal it.

This townhall will be conducted over Zoom, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions . There is no cost to join, but please RSVP as space is limited. You will be sent a direct Zoom link by email before the event. We look forward to seeing you there!
