Michigan calls itself “The Great Lakes State,” but the Sierra Club recently gave the Legislature a failing grade on environmental issues. The Sierra Club said the 2011-2012 class of state lawmakers was “by far the most anti-environmental Legislature we’ve had in Michigan for decades.”
I’m not going to cast judgment on the Legislature. Decide for yourself after reading the Sierra Club’s legislative scorecard, which you can find here.
I do think it’s interesting that one of the Sierra Club members attacking the Legislature’s handling of environmental issues — especially the GOP, which currently controls every branch of state government — is a former Republican.
