Representative Yousef Rabhi is responding to the overwhelming pressure being put on Michigan’s legislature by Enbridge Energy and other fossil fuel interests, with the creation of a new Political Action Committee to help protect the irreplaceable water system that is the Great Lakes. We have many effective organizations who can lobby for us, getting vital information to legislators and county commissioners who hear from industry spokespeople every day. Representive Rabhi proposes that we show our commitment, and how vital it is to protect our environment from the looming climate crisis, by putting together a real “war chest” to fund a coalition for a clean and green Michigan.
The League of Conservation Voters, the Sierra Club, and Clean Water Action all have good lobbyists who work every day to defend Michigan’s environment, and we need them more than ever as fossil fuel companies dig in, refusing to transition to the clean economy we need. They need our support!
