Keeping Arbor Hills Landfill Accountable and Raising Maximum Fines
Since day one of my first term, he has fought to bring the Arbor Hills Landfill into compliance. I’ve worked in a bipartisan fashion with local and county leaders to ensure our residents have clean air to breathe.
In the three years since I was elected, the Arbor Hills Landfill and its operators have settled multiple lawsuits at the state and federal level and have paid millions in fines with legal requirements to mitigate air pollution.
Matt was instrumental in bringing the state’s attention to this issue. He introduced HB 4961 to increase the maximum allowable fines that EGLE can issue to landfill operators from $10,000 to $100,000.
