State Rep. Graham Filler continues to stand up for farmers and residents in rural Michigan communities by fighting back against overreaching government regulations that harm them.
The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) proposed a rule earlier this year that would have imposed new restrictions on county road commissions, severely limiting them from spraying mineral brine on gravel roads beginning on April 1.
“EGLE made a horrible decision that was going to turn dirt roads all over Michigan into a mess, lowering visibility and seriously increasing the amount of dust in the air for families who live off of dirt roads,” said Filler, R-Clinton County. “The rule was not based on science. It was a solution looking for a problem that would have horribly affected the quality of life of citizens who live on dirt roads.”
Filler was just one of many people who voiced strong opposition to the rule, which EGLE recently put on hold.
“I am thankful for the many farmers, residents, local officials, and the County Road Association for standing up against EGLE’s overreach and making sure their concerns were heard,” Filler said. “I will continue to be your voice against this rule and other policies that harm rural residents and farmers.”
