(WLNS) – Happy Earth Day. In honor of this day a package of bills was re-introduced at the state Capitol to better regulate the over-sight of oil and gas pipelines.

The four-bill package would initiate measures that would ensure better public health, safety and the environment.

The bill would require permits, regulations and response plans for private pipelines.

It would also require trustworthy efforts with Michigan residents for cleanup of oil and gas spills.
