Representative Julie Brixie voted with legislators from both parties to pass the Building Michigan Together Plan – and secure clean drinking water for millions of Michigan families.
“We need leaders at the state and federal level who value our natural resources and fight to protect and preserve them,” Brixie said.
The bill, which was signed into law by Governor Whitmer, provides almost $2 billion in funding for critical clean drinking water investments, including $712 million for clean water initiatives to address storm and wastewater, $325 million to replace lead service lines, and $55 million to help communities tackle toxic contaminants like PFAS.
Brixie currently represents Michigan’s 69th district, in Ingham County, which includes parts of Lansing, East Lansing, and Meridian Township. Prior to entering public office, Brixie specialized in environmental toxicology, and ran a mobile laboratory conducting investigations and cleanups of contaminated sites across Michigan.
