At the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin today participated in the dedication of 32,000 acres of the lakeshore as Wilderness, which will guarantee the protection and preservation of the land while providing important access to the lakeshore’s recreational opportunities and cultural resources. The law that directed the designation, which was signed into law by President Obama in March, was authored by Sen. Levin and cosponsored by Sen. Stabenow. ‘Today’s designation will go a long way to preserving and promoting one of our state’s top tourist attractions,’ said Sen. Stabenow. ‘Sleeping Bear Dunes is one of Michigan’s indispensible treasures, attracting more than 1.2 million visitors a year, and should be protected for future generations to enjoy.’ ‘This Wilderness Designation is the result of a long journey of many years of hard work. The designation will protect countless treasures, including the magnificent sand dunes, miles of picturesque beaches, bluffs towering over Lake Michigan, lush forests, and portions of two islands,’ Sen. Levin said. ‘At the same time, the designation will ensure public access to important recreational and cultural resources for many generations to come.’ The Wilderness designation culminates 13 years of efforts by the local community, the National Park Service and Congress to update the lakeshore’s general management plan and protect the park’s unique natural habitat from harmful development while enabling public access to...Read More

Chairwoman Stabenow Announces Support for Michigan State University to Help Michigan Farmers Access New Farm Bill Resources
U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today announced support for Michigan State University and its Cooperative Extension to help Michigan farmers and ranchers utilize new tools and resources available through the 2014 Farm Bill. President Obama signed Sen. Stabenow’s 2014 Farm Bill at Michigan State University in February. ‘Michigan State University and Cooperative Extension play a critical role in supporting our farmers and ranchers and Michigan’s agriculture economy,’ said Stabenow. ‘This announcement will provide MSU with additional support to help Michigan farmers access the tools and resources available to them in the 2014 Farm Bill to help create jobs and keep our agriculture economy growing.’ MSU will receive roughly $150,000 and will partner with a coalition of universities led by the University of Illinois. A portion of these funds will be used to develop new online decision making tools for commodity, specialty crop, and dairy producers. The remainder will be used to support state-based MSU extension agents to help conduct public education and outreach meetings this summer. Sign-ups for some newly established programs have already begun, with more beginning later this year. The bipartisan, five-year Farm Bill signed into law earlier this year reforms agriculture programs, reduces the deficit by $23 billion and will help farmers and business owners continue to grow Michigan’s agriculture economy. The bill includes major reforms like...Read More
