WMC joined other chambers of commerce this week opposing Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s attempt to evade judgement from federal courts over her attempted shutdown of Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline.
The chambers filed a brief with the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan in the case of Enbridge Energy, Limited Partnership v. Gretchen Whitmer. WMC filed a brief in support of Enbridge, along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Canadian Chamber of Commerce, and the state chambers in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
The pipeline delivers energy resources to multiple states, including Wisconsin. However, Gov. Whitmer’s shutdown order attempts to force the shutdown of a segment of the pipeline, cutting off residents and businesses from a needed energy source.
