Still Hope for 'Facility' Label...

... along the Tittabawassee River floodplain. Today's Midland Daily News... Bill targets 'facility' labeling reports our legislators are still working on getting that tag removed from our residential properties.

Whenever the 'facility' label is brought up to Steve Chester and his crew, their mantra is... 'It can't be removed. We didn't label it that way. It just is.'

Kathie's article says, 'The law was put into place in the mid-1990s to stimulate brownfield development. Its purpose was to require the party responsible for contamination to take responsibility for it. That hasn't changed.' My backyard... tagged for brownfield development? Oh! Now I understand. Do you want it Ms. Rhetoric? Come and get it. You can have it if you meet Dr. Sam Shaheen's offer!

If such legislation passes, do you suppose Our Mission will be accomplished?
