Action Alert: Take Action: Tell Gov. Snyder to Veto the Sand Dunes Development Bill!
The Michigan Legislature just voted to undo sand dune protections; the bill now sits on the Governor’s desk. Tell him to preserve Michigan’s iconic sand dunes and veto SB 1130!
SB 1130 makes it harder for the DEQ to protect sand dunes from irresponsible development, undoing decades of responsible development.
It actually limits local zoning control of sand dune development, requires the DEQ to approve driveways even when they’ll cause erosion, and shifts the burden of proof from developers to the state about whether or not a development will cause ecological harm to the dunes.
All this means that it will be much harder for the DEQ and local citizens to adequately protect sand dunes from irresponsible development. Strong opposition to this bill delayed it once; Your voice is needed to convince the Governor not to erode sand dune protections in Michigan!
