Michigan pipeline safety task force formed

LANSING (WKZO) -- A new state government task force will look into pipeline safety in Michigan.

Attorney General Bill Schuette and Department of Environmental Quality Director Dan Wyant will co-chair the effort to examine pipelines that carry oil products through Michigan. They note that while formal oversight for gas and oil pipelines comes from the federal government, the network of line in the state has the potential to impact Michigan's environment and communities.

The task force will review a report from Enbridge on the status, condition and future of the company's pipeline under the Mackinac Straits when it's finished.
