LoL Friday Short: Democrats working to abolish Snyder’s “Polluter Panels”

Here’s the LoL Friday Short on this October 20th, of 2023

Democrats in the Michigan Legislature have introduced bills to abolish former Republican Gov. Rick Snyder’s “Polluter Panels.”

Snyder and the MAGA majority back in 2018 created a panel filled with industry and commercial insiders with the main goal of slowing down or stopping any real, meaningful protections for the environment and every Michigander.

But thanks to the new Democratic majority, steps are finally happening to eliminate these panels, and to leave the decision making to qualified people within the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy–or EGLE.

Now, we understand why Rick Snyder is working with the rich donor class to reinstall MAGA into the majority in Lansing next fall. It’s all about profits–and saving his sad and sorry legacy.
