 Road Commission Files Appeal Against EPA Over Denial of CR 595 Permit
The Marquette County Road Commission will hold a joint press conference with Stand U.P. on Friday, July 10, 2015 at 10 am EST at the Road Commission’s Office in Ishpeming to discuss its federal challenge to the USEPA’s arbitrary and pre-determined decision to block construction of CR 595. The Road Commission is requesting that the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan set aside USEPA’s final objection to the Road Commission’s permit application and remand the application back to the Michigan DEQ.
