Update on Thursday’s Public Comment Opportunity to stop DNR auction of public lands for fracking
Last Thursday, we posted a story about this week’s Natural Resources Commission (NRC) meeting in Lansing and the opportunity for people to weigh in on the proposed October 24 auction of more public land for oil & gas extraction.
The group Citizens Against Drilling on Public Land Michigan has announced that due to so many peoples signing up for the public comment opportunity the Natural Resources Commission meeting has been moved.
The new location for the September meeting will be held at Lansing Center located at 333 E. Michigan Avenue in downtown Lansing – just a few blocks from the state Capitol.
Citizens Against Drilling on Public Land Michigan states, “The NRC is encouraging those addressing the commission on the same topic to designate a spokesperson to speak on behalf of the group. That spokesperson will be granted ten (10) minutes. All others not included in the group will now be limited to three (3) minutes each to allow maximum public input. Also attached is a copy of the Public Appearance Guidelines. Please bring 10 printed copies of your comments to hand out to the NRC commissioners.”
