Michigan to Ontario: No nuclear waste near Lake Huron, PLEASE
Some state legislators want the International Joint Commission to become involved in a nuclear waste storage dispute.
A Canadian energy company plans to build a nuclear waste storage facility about a mile from Lake Huron – across from Michigan's thumb area.
Sen.Phil Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township, says he hopes Michigan will set an example that other Great Lakes states will follow.
"It's one thing coming from Michigan," says Pavlov. "But if the other states were to follow with the same vigor that we're going after, it's a force multiplier."
The state Senate is expected to vote this week on a resolution asking the president to request the International Joint Commission's involvement.
The Commission has jurisdiction over disputes involving Great Lakes issues.
