Here we go again, another attempt to pass a bill supporting state right-of-way construction even if city leaders oppose it. It's a roundabout way to get a gasoline pipeline built on Lansing's south side.
The Senate Committee on Transportation heard testimony Tuesday both for and against it. An almost identical bill stalled in the Senate last session. Supporters started in the Senate this time around only making one small change. John Griffin, Executive Director for the Associated Petroleum Industries of Michigan, says it had to do with intersecting roads.
The Committee on Transportation is scheduled to meet again Thursday to vote on whether to send the bill forward to the full Senate.
