Environmentalists contend the ongoing, lame-duck session of the state Legislature is proving detrimental to health of “Pure Michigan.”  In the December edition of WEMU’s "1st Friday Focus on the Environment," David Fair explores measures that could strip away wetlands protections and measures that could keep the nearly 70-year old Line 5 pipeline operational in the Straits of Mackinac for another decade.  Michigan League of Conservation Voters executive director Lisa Wozniak and Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council policy director Jennifer McKay join in with their perspectives.
