From the AP:
Michigan's congressional delegation supported a proposal to help communities that have deteriorating sewers implement more modern wastewater systems.
Nearly the entire delegation last week supported the plan, sponsored by Rep. Dave Camp, R-Midland, which would spend $1.7 billion over five years in federal grants to modernize sewer systems and control sewer overflows that have polluted rivers and streams.
Imagine that, Mr. Rogers actually doing something helpful for his constituents.
On Friday, the House approved the Clean Water State Revolving Fund, which would give out up to $20 billion in loans over five years for water pollution abatement projects.Whoa, even some of Michigan's most conservative congresscritters voted to help Michigan's economy, work force, and environment.
The measure would give union construction workers a hiring advantage for water projects funded by federal lending.
All six Michigan Democrats voted yes, joining Republican Reps. Vernon Ehlers of Grand Rapids, Thaddeus McCotter of Livonia, Fred Upton of St. Joseph and Candice Miller of Macomb County's Harrison Township. Four Republicans voted against it and Camp did not vote.
Mr. Rogers? Well, apparently the unions and the rest of the working class don't rate high enough (or didn't donate enough money to all of his special-interest projects for the super-rich) on his list of "constituents to really represent".
