Environmental Chief
(2008-08-04)
(wgvu) - Government regulators are never in the
running for congeniality awards.
That may especially be true for the man charged with overseeing
permits for new power plants, mines and large-scale livestock
operations in Michigan.
Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Director Steven
Chester says some of the most contentious issues facing his
department right now are plans to build the first new coal-fired
power plants in the state in nearly 20 years.
He tells The Associated Press in a recent interview the
unresolved debate in the state Legislature over energy legislation
a "little disquieting." He says it leaves the state without a
framework for choosing among competing proposals.
