Senator Casperson Backs Up Michigan Dredging Plan (USA)
Sen. Tom Casperson has joined with several of his colleagues to form the bipartisan, bicameral Legislative Waterways Caucus and will soon be introducing legislation aimed at enhancing enjoyment of Michigan waters.
Sens. Goeff Hansen and Jack Brandenburg will serve as Senate co-chairs of the caucus, which will be a forum for a variety of issues, such as invasive species, dredging, low lake levels, tourism and recreation.
“As co-chair of the Legislative Waterways Caucus, I look forward to working with my colleagues on issues affecting our most treasured natural jewel,” said Hansen, R-Hart. “Michigan has an abundance of natural resources, and our waterways are a key part of the lifestyle, tourism industry and local economy of many Great Lakes coastal communities.”
