MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – U.S. Congressman Dan Benishek called in today to the SUNNY Morning Show to give listeners a quick legislative update.
Benishek discussed a series of items including getting increased federal funding to aid Michigan farmers who have had their crops destroyed this year due to the abnormal weather we have experienced.
He also discussed how, in his opinion, poor forest management by Federal Forestry officials resulted in the massive forest fires this year in both the Upper Peninsula of Michigan as well as several western states.
The Congressman also chatted about his feelings about the United States Armed Forces involvement in Afghanistan and how he feels we should get our troops out of a misguided effort and bring them home.
