Rep. Glenn is chair of a Michigan state budget subcommittee devoted to the Great Lakes, energy and the environment.
Rep. Annette Glenn, R-Midland, today chaired the first 2021 hearing of a Michigan state budget subcommittee devoted to the Great Lakes, energy and the environment.
Glenn and other committee members heard a departmental overview from Liesl Clark – director of the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy – just a few days before Gov. Whitmer’s administration details a new budget recommendation for the 2021-22 fiscal year.
The administration’s budget recommendation is expected Thursday.
“I look forward to working with the governor’s administration on crafting a transparent budget that is accountable to Michigan taxpayers and helps make state government more responsive, effective and efficient,” Glenn said. “There is a lot of work to do.
“From cleaning up PFAS and other steps to improve water and air quality, we must protect our environment and the Great Lakes. From repairing and restoring aging dams to replacing part of Line 5 with a state-of-the-art underground tunnel, we must responsibly and safely provide energy while protecting Michigan’s precious natural resources. These are among the items I will be focused on as we delve into upcoming budget discussions.”
