Gov. Whitmer Halts All Action Surrounding Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority

The governor stopped all action surrounding the Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said Thursday that the law that formed it is unconstitutional.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer has now signed an executive directive to stop all action surrounding the law.

It created a group of people to manage the installation of tunnels that will house pipelines currently running under the Straits of Mackinac.

Former Governor Rick Snyder appointed three people to serve on the authority in December, but the attorney general says the authority goes beyond the scope of its title.

The governor sought the AG’s opinion on if the law was constitutional in January.
