Snyder urges More Energy efficiency in next 10 years Warren Mich. A Michi Gan should ramp up Energy efficiency programs Over the next decade and encourage but not require utilities to produce More Power with natural Gas and renew Able sources to replace retiring Coal fired plants gov. Rick Snyder told lawmakers on Friday. He said his goal is that anywhere from 11 to 24 percent of the state s electricity come from wind the Sun and other renewable by 2025 depending on their Cost compared to natural Gas. He would leave intact a current requirement that 10 percent of Power derive from renewable sources and mostly let stand a pro vision opening up 10 percent of two dominant utilities electric markets to competitors who sell to businesses and schools. The Republican s speech delivered at an electrician training Center in the Detroit suburb of Warren was intended to set the stage this year for a rewrite of Michigan s 2008 Energy Law in the gop led legislature. That Law which includes a mandate to generate More renew Able Power lets utilities comply by charging customers surcharges that have gone away or have been slashed. Snyder said he Hopes those charges along with fees that were imposed for Energy efficiency pro Grams will no longer be needed.

Audit finds some Bridge inspections lacking Lansing a some Michi Gan Bridges classified As being in critical condition Aren t being inspected As frequently or As thoroughly As they should be according to an audit released Friday. The Michigan department of transportation agreed with findings from the state auditor general that inspections of Bridges need to be improved. Dot is required to inspect More than 5,800 state owned Bridges at least every two years. The auditor s report said Dot did t have sufficient processes for ensuring inspectors consistently increased the frequency of inspections for structurally deficient Bridges. As a result some Bridges might not have been inspected As often As necessary. Dot also did n t provide consistent guidance to inspectors for Bridges where ply Wood decking is used to prevent broken Concrete from falling onto traffic until other repairs can be made. The report recommends Dot pursue state legislation to move toward More risk based Bridge inspection. That process would also require seeking approval from the Federal Highway administration for longer inspection intervals where warranted. Dot spokesman Jeff Cranson said the department plans to Start that two step process soon. The changes if approved could help improve efficiency of the Bridge inspection program by freeing up resources for More frequent inspections of structurally deficient Bridges Cranson said. For the 6,500 locally owned Bridges statewide responsibility for inspections is delegated by Dot to the cities counties villages and townships that own the Bridges. Dot did t have sufficient Meas ures to ensure those local Bridge owners and regional Dot offices completed routine inspections according to the audit. Dot also did t ensure action plans for Bridges with certain critical conditions contained All recommended information. The Overall audit concludes the Bridge inspection program is moderately effective an improvement from the finding in a 2010 audit that it was not effective.
