LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Jon Bumstead on Tuesday celebrated the first implementation phase of a plan to make critical improvements at Michigan state parks.
Funding for the plan was included in Bumstead’s Senate Bill 565, which dedicated $4.7 billion in state and federal dollars to make important infrastructure investments across the state, including $450 million for state and local parks.
“Protecting and preserving our state’s natural resources — especially our treasured state and local parks — is good for the environment, our economy, and for the enjoyment of Michiganders and visitors alike,” said Bumstead, R-North Muskegon, who chairs the Appropriations Subcommittee on Natural Resources and Environment, Great Lakes and Energy. “I am so pleased that the funding lawmakers and the governor joined together to approve is already making a difference in our communities. It’s a wonderful example of what we can accomplish when we work together, and I hope the work being done will make our parks more enjoyable for generations to come.”
