OMA Supports Enbridge Line 5 Pipeline


The OMA this week supported a measure (Senate Resolution 41) that implores the governor of Michigan and director of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to exercise all efforts to keep the Enbridge Line 5 pipeline operating. The owner of the pipeline is currently embroiled in a legal battle with the State of Michigan over whether it can operate through the Straits of Mackinac, which connect Lakes Huron and Michigan. Enbridge Line 5 is a major oil pipeline that carries petroleum from Canada to multiple Ohio oil refineries, which provide resources for countless manufacturers. 6/10/2021
