ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

Michigan has faced Environmental injustice for decades and little has been done about it. From pollution of our water and air to the poisoning of our soil, communities of color are bearing a dual and disproportionate burden of environmental injustice. We have a moral, ethical, and legislative obligation to fix these problems now and I will advocate to reduce the high environmental justice (“EJ”) scores” that plague our state in both urban and rural areas.”

In an effort to work towards Environmental Justice I have introduced the following bill…

  • House Bill 5003: would require industrial or commercial entities that discharge liquid waste into any water other than through a public sanitary sewer to have waste treatment or control facilities.
    • The waste treatment facilities would have been under the specific supervision and control of individuals who have been certified by the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy as properly qualified to operate the facilities.
    • In our Fiscal Year 2022 state budget, I was able to bring $5 million dollars to Southeast Michigan to provide air quality monitors in Detroit.
