LANSING — Sen. Jeremy Moss (D-Southfield) and Rep. Jim Ellison (D-Royal Oak) issued the following joint statement today after the discovery of hazardous waste in Madison Heights on Friday

“The news this weekend of a hazardous waste oozing on I-696 in Madison Heights is alarming. We’ve been communicating with those who are working to contain and clean up the site and are grateful for their swift response in monitoring this issue.
