A third virtual public comment session has been scheduled to take public feedback on the draft MI Healthy Climate Plan and the deadline for public comment on the draft has been extended to March 14. The additional session will take place Feb. 14, with a focus on environmental justice.

The first public comment session was held Jan. 26 and a recording is available on EGLE's Youtube channel and at Michigan.gov/Climate. Remaining sessions are scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 8, and 6-8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 14.

The draft MI Healthy Climate Plan builds on progress the state, utilities and numerous local communities are making toward Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's goal of achieving economywide carbon neutrality by 2050. It was developed with input from a wide swath of Michiganders and the expertise of the Michigan Council on Climate Solutions. EGLE is developing the plan through its Office of Climate and Energy.

Public comment on the draft plan is open through Monday, March 14. In addition to providing comments at the listening sessions, written comments may be submitted to EGLE-ClimateSolutions@Michigan.gov.
