Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A bill authored by State Senator Tom Casperson prohibiting the D-N-R from issuing orders or rules that could restrict significant amounts of land has passed the Legislature.

The Escanaba Republican says his bill seeks to balance the protection of state natural resources and their use for recreation, tourism and economic development.

Casperson says the measure prohibits overly restrictive regulations imposed by department bureaucrats that will only be a detriment to the economy and overall forest health.

The bill was given final approval by the Legislature late last week and was sent to the governor for his consideration.
