One would never know it doomscrolling through the headlines. Too many crises. But thanks to the “Three Things Thursday” email from Lisa Wozniak of the League of Michigan Conservation Voters, I learned that effective August 3rd, Michigan will adopt tough new standards to regulate the levels of PFAS in our drinking water! AND with overwhelming bipartisan support (310-107), the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Great American Outdoors Act! The legislation will ensure public lands are preserved and protected by permanently funding the Land and Water Conservation Fund. As it has already passed the Senate, the bill now goes to the President for signature.
If you are interested in staying on top of issues related to our drinking water, clean air, the Great Lakes, our parks, and good government, sign up for the “Three Things Thursday” update. And while you are on the site of this nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, check out the “snapshot-in-time” scorecard for Michigan’s governor, attorney general, and your state representatives on these five focus areas. It’s good information to have as you cast your vote on August 4 and again on November 3.
