‼️The state House voted 58-51 on Wednesday to reject the sweeping environmental executive order signed Monday by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, in a move denounced as an irresponsible vote against clean drinking water.
Lawmakers said they didn't have a problem with Whitmer restructuring the Department of Environmental Quality as the Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy, but they strongly oppose the governor's decision to abolish industry-dominated panels that would review environmental rules and permit decisions under a law passed by the GOP-controlled Legislature and signed by then-Gov. Rick Snyder just last year.
The Republican-controlled House voted 58-51, along party lines, to reject Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's first nonemergency executive order.
