The following statement can be attributed to Sean McBrearty, Michigan Legislative and Policy Director, Clean Water Action:

“The MI Propane Plan released today is the product of two years of work and meticulous study by the Whitmer administration. It is a bold step in building a better, more secure energy future for all Michigan residents. For years, Enbridge and their allies have been spending millions of dollars to scare Michigan residents and create a fiction that the sky will fall and people will freeze without Line 5. Governor Whitmer’s team has proved them wrong once again. When Line 5 is shut down, our Great Lakes will no longer be at risk of a massive oil spill, and Michigan will still have all energy resources we need. Instead of wasting millions of dollars on dishonest advertisements, perhaps Enbridge should instead be focused on assuaging the fears of Michiganders by removing Line 5 for good.”


Since our founding during the campaign to pass the landmark Clean Water Act in 1972, Clean Water Action has worked to win strong health and environmental protections by bringing issue expertise, solution-oriented thinking and people power to the table. Clean Water Action is Michigan’s largest grassroots conservation group with over 133,000 members across the state. Through direct advocacy and education we organize Michigan residents to protect the Great Lakes and our water resources. Learn more at
