Environmentalists are giving a road map to Michigan’s elected leaders for dealing with threats to the state’s land, lakes and drinking water.  

Twenty conservation and environmental groups delivered their recommendations last week.

Lisa Wozniak is the executive director of the Michigan League of Conservation Voters. 

She believes Michigan’s Democratic governor and Republican-led Legislature can find common ground on things like clean drinking water.

“Based on the fact that people in Michigan, no matter where you live and no matter who is representing you, people are very, very worried about the water coming out of their taps,” says Wozniak.

The report also calls on Michigan’s elected leaders to take action on tackling climate change, and protecting the Great Lakes and public lands.
