In 1987, State Senator Lana Pollack (D-Ann Arbor) pushed through “Polluter Pay” legislation in Lansing, but during the ensuing Engler Administration, the laws were dismantled. Now, 53rd District State Representative Yousef Rabhi (D-Ann Arbor) and 18th District State Senator Jeff Irwin (D-Ann Arbor) have introduced companion bills seeking to, once again, hold those who pollute accountable for their actions. Senator Irwin joined WEMU's David Fair to offer insight on the bills in this week's "Issues of the Environment."
