LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today released the following statement regarding the new information that the gaps in coating on Line 5 were present in 2014. 

“Trust and transparency are critical in any relationship. This latest revelation by Enbridge means that the faith and trust Michigan has placed in Enbridge has reached an even lower level. Enbridge needs to do more than apologize, Enbridge owes the citizens of Michigan a full and complete explanation of why they failed to truthfully report the status of the pipeline.”
