Obama Won’t Visit Oil Spill Site on Today’s Trip to Michigan
President Obama will be in Michigan today, but, at least according to his public schedule, he won’t be stopping in Battle Creek, the site of an oil spill that has leaked 1 million gallons of oil into a tributary of the Kalamazoo River. (A call to confirm with the White House press office was not immediately returned.)
For more on the spill, which one legislator called the worst in Midwest history, see this story, from our sister publication The Michigan Messenger, as well as this story on the spotty record of Enbridge Energy, the company that owns the pipeline that burst.
Plus, I’ve got a story today that looks at the agency that oversees the U.S. pipeline system.
Obama, according to his schedule, will visit a Chrysler plant in Detroit and a General Motors plant in Hamtramck, Mich.
