Michigan’s manufacturing-intensive economy depends on affordable energy. But energy would become increasingly more expensive without the infrastructure and pipelines that deliver oil, petroleum products and natural gas to businesses and power plants across the state.

Whoa, Mr. Smith! What does getting illegal guns out of the hands of unstable people have to do with immigration in California? (“We need fewer guns, not fewer restriction,” by J.P.

We need a robust system of energy infrastructure to keep energy costs low and help MI manufacturers
