Significant Funding Expected for Four Lakes Communities
Legislation will be introduced today in the Michigan House and Senate that would allocate $500 million in funding to make dam repairs and improvements an even bigger priority in the state. The measure includes significant funding for restoration of the Four Lakes and dams.
While we understand this is proposed legislation and the funding has not yet been allocated, we see this as a hopeful sign for the restoration of our lakes and region. As more specific information becomes available, we will communicate it.
We are grateful for the leadership of Speaker of the House Jason Wentworth, Sen. Jim Stamas, Rep. Annette Glenn and Rep. Roger Hauck along with support from Dow, Inc. and all of our advocates who understand the personal, economic, recreational and environmental importance of the lakes to the Gladwin and Midland communities.
We urge our state elected officials to consider the lives and communities impacted by the tragedy that occurred on May 19, 2020 and we ask them to move quickly to pass this measure.
