Hazardous Material Could be Used in Michigan Roads

By  | 

The State House has voted to allow a hazardous material called coal ash to be used in our roads.

Coal ash is a byproduct of power plants and is dangerous if it gets into groundwater.

The bills' sponsors say other Great Lakes states allow it, and say the coal ash would be safely packed into the cement.

Environmental groups say it gives companies too much protection if it leaks into the water supply.

We'll let you know when the senate votes.
