Earlier this year, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed into law the Building Michigan Together Plan. The law directs roughly $2 billion toward improving critical infrastructure that will ensure clean drinking water for Michigan families.
State Representative Angela Witwer joined legislators from both parties in voting for the legislation, which includes $325 million to replace lead service lines, $55 million to help communities remove toxic contaminants such as PFAS, and $712 million for initiatives to address storm and wastewater issues.
Witwer, who is in her second term representing Michigan’s 71st House District, began her career working in the burn unit of Sparrow Hospital in Lansing before becoming the manager of pediatric rehabilitation. After 22 years in health care, she co-founded Edge Partnerships, a communications firm, and served as an advocate for improving public education and community engagement.
