Trick, not treat: 'Guaranteed bankruptcy' yard waste bill is this week's scare

In a twisted nod to Halloween hijinks, the Michigan Senate's Energy & Technology Committee today takes up a piece of legislation, SB 314, that surely is no treat.

The "guaranteed bankruptcy" bill that would put Michigan composting operations out of business by reversing the ban on yard waste in landfills is up for a hearing at 1 p.m. We've explained why this bill is terrible and regressive public policy here. We'll be telling legislators that, and you can too by contacting the committee members and telling them that we prefer value-added, job-creating Michigan products (compost) over dumping more crap in our landfills.
