Michigan Gov. Asks For Review of Enbridge Tunnel Project Under Straits of Mackinac
New Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has asked for an opinion from Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) on whether legislation to keep Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac and form the new Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority is constitutional. Outgoing Gov. Rick Snyder (R) signed a bill passed by the state’s Republican-led legislature Dec. 12 that approved construction and operation of a utility tunnel in the straits that would house a replacement for a segment of the pipeline and create a new authority to oversee the project.
