After major power outages swept the state in recent weeks, state Rep. Mark Tisdel, of Rochester Hills, today issued the following statement:
“Recent storm-induced power outages should be a wake-up call to leaders in the public and private sectors. In Greater Rochester alone, thousands of homes and businesses lost power. Like a flash of lightning, the outages shed a brief but blinding light on the need to strengthen Michigan’s electric grid. I hope the power companies — including DTE Energy, which supplies electricity to Greater Rochester — will answer residents’ pressing questions and, in partnership with state government, identify and take steps to make the grid more resistant to outages and reliable for users.”
Rep. Tisdel comments on House passage Wednesday of the state’s budget for the 2022 Fiscal Year, saying the plan puts a record amount into the state’s rainy day fund, while redeploying money to help- improve local roads.
State Rep. Mark Tisdel today invited Greater Rochester residents to join him for office hours on Monday, Sept. 27.
Tisdel, of Rochester Hills, will host the meeting in Conference Room A at the Rochester Hills Public Library, 500 Olde Towne Road in Rochester, between 6 and 8 p.m.
