LANSING, Mich. — Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D–Flint) released the following statement in response to Gov. Snyder’s appointment of Heidi Grether as the new director of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ):

“Ms. Grether faces a steep climb in restoring trust that the MDEQ will have a culture of putting the public’s health first. If she’s willing to take that on, I have a number of suggestions for what needs to change. Regardless, more public oversight and involvement is a must.”
