Whitmer Budget Address Focuses on Key Water Issues

LANSING, MI – Governor Whitmer outlined her budget proposal for the State of Michigan today. Her address outlined a number of important water-related investments. 

The following is a reaction from Cyndi Roper, Michigan Senior Policy Advocate with NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council): 

“Governor Whitmer is bringing a number of really important investments that will significantly improve drinking water quality and infrastructure for Michiganders. The focus on affordability, safeguarding drinking water in schools, fixing the systems that treat and move our drinking water, and responding to drinking water emergencies are all critical. We need to see the details, but this budget would seem to point to Governor Whitmer wrestling with some of the vexing historic disinvestment and oversight problems that she has inherited—and hopefully making real progress towards durable fixes.”
