“Too many deer can become dangerous for Michigan,” said Borton, R-Gaylord. “Hunters are Michigan’s first line of defense for conserving our environment. This year, we’re asking them to let a couple big bucks walk and focus on the does.”
“House Democrats pressed their green boots into the throats of Northern Michigan as they passed these bills today. This plan destroys the ability of local government to regulate wind and solar projects. Instead of letting local officials do their jobs, the legislation hands all power over to a commission of three unelected bureaucrats appointed by the governor. The commission have zero incentive to listen to the public, effectively silencing all protest to wind and solar projects.”
