Even though the Michigan legislature and the administration have agreed to a budget for the next fiscal year that includes funds for dam safety, this is not the same as legislation that was introduced in the Michigan House and Senate in May that could allocate millions of dollars for dam repairs to restore the Four Lakes. The May legislation is not included in the recently announced budget
Any financial allocation for the dams would more than likely come in the approval of a supplemental appropriation, with discussion on these types of investments beginning in October. Financing for the bills is possible because of excess available funds.
We are grateful for the strong advocacy from our local property owners, which is appreciated by our elected officials. FLTF is actively engaged in monitoring and providing input into this process.
Please see a previous News Flash for more detail on how the proposed appropriation would be allocated to FLTF.
