State Rep. John Damoose, of Harbor Springs, today issued the following statement after activists temporarily halted operation of the Line 5 oil and natural gas pipeline by tampering with a valve site:
“The attack by these domestic terrorists — who claimed on video they were acting to implement Gov. Whitmer’s shutdown of Line 5 — is unconscionable. This action was a direct product of an irresponsible narrative being pushed by misguided extremists. Instead of threatening critical infrastructure that so many rely upon for their survival, we should work together for common-sense improvements like building the Great Lakes Tunnel.”
Rep. Damoose talks about his HB 5335, which is currently out of the House and pending in the Michigan Senate. HB 5335 would require local clerks to provide badges, which poll challengers would wear while at a polling place or counting board. Rep. Damoose says the legislation is part of a larger move toward transparency.
