  • On Dec. 11, 2009, the Michigan DEQ (now DNRE) proposed an Environmental Justice Plan in response to an Executive Directive issued by Governor Granholm. “Environmental justice” means “the fair, non-discriminatory treatment and meaningful involvement of Michigan residents regarding the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies by this state.” Comments are being accepted through March 5, 2010. A copy of the plan is available on the DNRE Web site: http://www.michigan.gov/documents/deq/envjustplan&under;304917&under;7.pdf
