Read the press release Snyder says adaptability key to state’s energy, environmental future
Two days after being named co-chair of the Great Lakes Council of Governors, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder is making a major policy address on energy and the environment. The special message to the legislature will take place tomorrow morning at 10:30 a.m. and will be available for live viewing at www.GreatLakesNow.org.
Governor Snyder’s special message has been in development for several months, and follows the defeat of a constitutional amendment in the fall elections proposing mandates for clean energy in Michigan.
Several issues that the Governor may address were topics of discussion at Great Lakes Week 2012 in September. Those topics may include:
- What is the “Blue Economy”?
- Predictions for the Great Lakes in 2013
- Michigan’s Great Lakes Eco-System (Michigan Sea Grant)
- Restoring the Natural Divide: Separating the Great Lakes from the Mississippi River
Wednesday’s special message also follows the Governor’s trade mission to Canada earlier this week, and the opening of a new Michigan trade office in Canada to support economic development.
Remote viewing locations are being offered for the Governor’s Wednesday address in Detroit, Muskegon, Traverse City, and Hickory Corners (see details below). The Governor is expected to answer questions related to energy and the environment from those remote locations.
