Air Emissions Fee Debated

A proposal to increase the air emissions fee industries pay is up for debate in the Michigan House.

Governor Rick Snyder wanted a 36-percent bump in the fee paid by industries that emit air pollutants, instead a House committee recently gave the green light to just a 6-percent increase.

The fee increase would allow the state’s Department of Energy Quality to keep up with the federal air emission requirements. If Michigan didn’t do so the EPA would take over the state’s air quality program which industries fear would slow down the permitting process.
