No NOAA Marine Sanctuary
NO NOAA MARINE SANCTUARY
The State of Wisconsin is ready to GIVE AWAY control of 1,260 sq.mi. of Lake Michigan fresh water, beach and bottomland to the Federal Gov.
This is an IRREVERSIBLE, historic LOSS and Wisconsin residents are NOT INCLUDED in the FINAL decision unless you speak up now.
We, the undersigned, petition for the cancellation of the proposed Lake Michigan National Marine Sanctuary to be located in Lake Michigan adjacent to Ozaukee, Sheboygan and Manitowoc counties and optionally Kewaunee County. We believe the nomination process was flawed and lacked full disclosure of material facts. We believe that implementation of the sanctuary will result in onerous regulations that would deprive us of free and unencumbered use of the designated area. We oppose the duplicitous and unaccountable expenditure of taxpayer dollars. We believe the management of cultural resources should be the responsibilities of state and local governments.
