Snyder is messing with tourism, stability of natural areas, adds to the heating of the waters of the Great Lakes, increases the evaporation of the waters and increases drought conditions.

Gov. Rick Snyder has signed legislation (click title to entry - thank you) that makes the first significant changes to Michigan's sand dune law since the state established protections for critical areas more than two decades ago.
The law signed Tuesday cleared the Republican-controlled state Legislature last month. It gives builders an easier time gaining approval for houses, driveways and other projects on private land.
Environmental groups say the law will allow overdevelopment by weakening regulators' authority to block projects or require changes to reduce their impact.
Pro-development interests say the previous law was tilted heavily in favor of dune protection and prevents landowners from using their property....
Heavily favored in dune protection.
Ah. Yeah. How about that, huh?
Snyder is destroying democracy in cities and natural resources while real estate values are in the doldrums. What does Snyder think he is doing to the depressed real estate markets in Michigan? Improving them?
Snyder has got to be the worst Governor Michigan has ever seen in modern day economics. The worst! Nothing he is doing makes sense, only monies and exploitation to cronies.
I might add, the real estate values were recovering in Michigan before Snyder started his takeover of democratically elected government. Even Detroit was seeing increases in their real estate values.
