Casperson Takes On Environmental Protection Agency And Army Corps
MI Senator Tom Casperson. (R)-Escanaba.
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Michigan Senator Tom Casperson called in to the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today for his regular legislative update.
Casperson discussed a pair of legislative matters that he is currently involved in at the Capitol.
The Escanaba Republican says the first resolution calls on the U.S. EPA and the U.S. Army Corps to withdraw their proposed rule expanding the definition of “Waters of the United States”.
Casperson says he introduced the resolutions to defend states’ Tenth Amendment rights and limit another federal power-grab by bureaucrats to significantly expand environmental regulations on areas such as ditches and man-made ponds.
The second item had to do with continued usage of wood-burning stoves.
Casperson introduced Senate Bill 910 which aims to prohibit the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality from regulating wood-burning stoves through rules and from enforcing any EPA regulation limiting emissions from wood-burning appliances after May 1.
