LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- A controversial plan to build a tunnel that houses a crude oil and natural gas liquids pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac is one step closer to reality.
Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill Wednesday.
It creates a tunnel oversight commission and lets Snyder’s tunnel plan move forward.
Environmental groups oppose the move. They say running oil in a pipeline under the Straits is too risky for the Great Lakes.
