John Robinson Testimony

John Robinson testified on Assembly Bill 347 on October 31, 2019 at the Assembly Committee on the Environment. John helped the Committee understand the ramifications of a bill to allow sand dredged from Lakes Michigan and Superior to be exempted from certain solid waste regulations. The bill would relax oversight of placement of dredged material in some circumstances. John’s testimony stressed the need to be sure contaminants are not inadvertently spread to other sites.
