Representative Darrin Camilleri voted with lawmakers from both parties to pass the Building Michigan Together Plan, which will provide almost $2 billion in funding for critical clean 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.
Camilleri, who is running for the Michigan State Senate, said of the clean water investments: “Keeping our air and water clean will help our economy, protect public health, and ensure we have beautiful places to live, work, and play.”
Governor Whitmer later signed the bill into law, ensuring that millions of Michiganders will have access to clean drinking water.
State Rep. Camilleri is currently serving his third term representing the 23rd District, which includes the Downriver communities of Gibraltar, Grosse Ile, Huron, Trenton, Woodhaven, and Brownstown. He currently serves as Minority Whip for the House Democrats and the Minority Vice Chair on the House Education Committee.
