Governor Whitmer Statement on Attorney General Nessel’s Legal Actions Against Enbridge

Lansing, MICH.  Governor Gretchen Whitmer released the below statement following Attorney General Nessel actions against Enbridge:

“I fully support Attorney General’s action today on Line 5. Enbridge resumed operation of the pipeline through the Straits of Mackinac without any explanation of the cause for the damage to the pipeline structure or plan to prevent it from happening again. Moreover, Enbridge has not timely complied with the state’s request for full and complete information and resumed operation without even consultation.  This brazen disregard for the people of Michigan and the safety and well-being of our Great Lakes is unacceptable.”
