Report seeking oil and gas leases on 5.3 million acres of state land called ‘stupid.’

Members of the Michigan Legislature have issued a report calling for the state to seek oil and gas leases on 5.3 million acres of state land, according to a story today by Jim Harger at the Grand Rapids Press.

The move was called “stupid” by James Clift, the policy director for Michigan Environmental Council, the state’s largest environmental organization.

Harger’s story said:

The report also called for the repeal of a 2008 law that encourages utilities to create incentives that conserve energy consumption.”
