State Senator Tom Casperson (R) Escanaba

Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – State Senator Tom Casperson called in to the Sunny Morning Show for a post-election update this week.

The Escanaba Republican talked about his measure, Senate Bill 1197, that seeks to give the Mackinac Bridge Authority the ability to manage an underground pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac.

Casperson says the Bridge Authority would be the logical choice for a management body to oversee the tunnel if it is created as proposed in a plan to route the Enbridge Line 5 pipeline through the area as recently put forth by Governor Rick Snyder.

He acknowledged that the proposal, and his legislation, are being met with some pushback, but he says he feels is the best choice to get the process started.

Casperson also talked about the transition that is coming as he is term-limited out of the legislature in Lansing and his fellow Republican, Ed McBroom of Vulcan, is coming in to serve.
