Dr. Benishek: “EPA’s Decision Step Forward For County Road 595”

Dec 5, 2012 Issues: Economy and Jobs

MARQUETTE, MI:  Dr. Dan Benishek (MI-01) today released the following statement following the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to withdraw one of its objections to the Country Road 595 Project in Marquette County: 

“The EPA’s decision is a small step forward in the process of getting County Road 595 constructed.  I have been fighting hard for this project because it has the potential to create many good-paying jobs in the Upper Peninsula.  We can’t let new jobs in Northern Michigan be blocked by federal red tape and bureaucratic roadblocks.  I am looking forward to continue working with federal, state, and local stakeholders to try to get this job-creating project to keep on moving in a positive direction.”
