Coldwater Habitat Preservation and Restoration:

Michigan Trout Unlimited will seek legislative and executive branch support for expanded coldwater habitat preservation and restoration programs in Michigan, including the appropriation of additional funds dedicated to habitat preservation, restoration and improvement.

Land Use Planning:

Michigan Trout Unlimited supports efforts at regional and watershed based land use planning efforts which result in the recognition of the role and function of coldwater systems and undertake efforts to protect those systems.

Natural Rivers Act:

Michigan Trout Unlimited supports the expansion of the Natural Rivers Program and designation of rivers under the program when such designation will contribute to coldwater habitat protection and restoration efforts.

Fisheries Habitat Restoration Project Permit Fees:

Michigan Trout Unlimited supports legislation that would recognize the significant contribution to Michigan's communities and citizens made by non-profit organizations engaged in habitat restoration work, and which would create a new permit fee structure which would not place as large an administrative and financial burden on groups undertaking such projects for the public good.
