“Resolving any legal uncertainty regarding PA 359, the Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority and action taken by the authority is necessary to assure that we can take all action necessary to protect the Great Lakes, protect our drinking water and protect Michigan jobs,” Whitmer said. “I pledged to take action on the Line 5 pipeline on day one as governor, and I am holding true to that campaign promise.”
