Whitmer Joins Call for Investigation into PFAS Contamination - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON JULY 16, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Whitmer Joins Call for Investigation into PFAS Contamination LANSING — Today, former Senate Democratic Leader and Ingham County Prosecutor Gretchen Whitmer released the following statement after reports revealed that warnings of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, contamination in Michigan were made in 2012. “Ignoring credible warnings of PFAS contamination is yet another example of how leaders like Governor Rick Snyder and Bill Schuette have put dollars and cents ahead of people’s lives. Michigan is home to more than 21 percent of the world’s fresh water, but right now dozens of sites across the state have been identified as being contaminated with PFAS. We cannot continue to ignore this administration’s failures to protect our drinking water. It’s time for a thorough investigation on why the Snyder administration suppressed the 2012 report” Whitmer has released a plan to create a Department of the Great Lakes and Fresh Water to protect Michigan’s drinking water. Whitmer will address PFAS contamination by restocking the Clean Michigan Initiative fund with the financial resources needed to address this man-made catastrophe, applying for grants to secure federal funding and holding polluters accountable for their mistakes. Funding will be used for clean-up efforts, home and utility filtration systems for Michigan residents and creating a statewide, publicly available database of all known groundwater resources and contaminated aquifer systems across Michigan. ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation Next Post   Whitmer Blasts Schuette Plan to Ban Abortion in Michigan Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

Repeal The Retirement Tax - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Repeal The Retirement Tax HOME ISSUES REPEAL THE RETIREMENT TAX After a lifetime of hard work, we must honor the promises made to our seniors so that they can retire in dignity in the state that they love. But right now working families and seniors are paying higher taxes under Governor Snyder As governor, I will protect our seniors and retirees by: Getting rid of the Snyder Retirement Tax, which will put more money in the pockets of Michigan seniors to spend on things like gas, groceries, and prescription drugs – which will help our small businesses grow and create jobs. Supporting options for independence at home, which should be a reality for more seniors who deserve financial and medical peace of mind. I will stand up to attacks on senior care, and will fight to improve coordinated medical benefits so that seniors can receive the healthcare they need in the comfort of their own homes for as long as they wish. Working to end elder abuse. As Senate Democratic Leader, I championed laws to create serious legal consequences for elder abuse, and attempts to exploit, neglect, intimidate, harm, or steal from our seniors. As Governor, I will continue to honor, defend, and respect our seniors and their rights.
