LANSING – Attorney General Dana Nessel made the following comment today in support of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's Executive Order establishing the U.P. Energy Task Force:

“I commend Gov. Whitmer for taking a proactive approach to ensuring our U.P. residents have a long-term solution that reins in the exorbitant energy costs they face each day. Enbridge has made clear its primary focus is its bottom line. And while the Governor and I work in tandem to decommission Line 5 as quickly as possible to protect our Great Lakes and the health and safety of our residents, her task force is a necessary step to ensure we meet the energy needs of all our state’s residents for generations to come.”
