In reference to Gov. Granholm's proposal to terminate the state's wetlands program and repeal the state law:
The governor seems to be either getting bad information as to how good the "federal alternative" is, or she is out right lying. I am going to hope and assume it's the former. In a recent newspaper article Liz Boyd, Granholm's spokeperson said "the governor's office believed the federal agencies would adequately protect Michigan's wetlands. We would not be recommending it if we weren't confident of that." If Boyd's statement is true, then we should be able to change the Governor's mind by presenting facts that clearly show that is not the case.
