Whitmer Sets State-Wide Water Quality Reporting Measures https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2019/02/04/whitmer-safe-drinking-water-michigan/2766112002/ The Flint Water Crisis is still dear to many Michiganders. Whitmer has taken action to prevent crises of similar nature from occurring in the future. By appointing a clean water public advocate, water across the state is held to the same standard. Bureaucracy has hindered the process of universal quality according to Whitmer. Business was also too involved on water issues in the past. In the future, Whitmer wants to diminish businesses' voices on policy issues of this matter. In order to impose this, she disbanded the environmental rules review committee which was largely influenced by industry appointees. Since this is a new initiative it is hard to tell how much of an impact it will have; however, the Michigan director for clean water action has said it is a step towards Michigan's clean and renewable energy. Do you think water quality standards should be statewide or countywide? How many seats should businesses have at the table, if any at all?
