Aquatic Species Conservation Act: Michigan Trout Unlimited supports passage of legislation that will further the scientific management of coldwater resources and allow the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to protect the public trust in coldwater resources. Any such legislation must provide for public input and oversight, rather than vesting the sole authority for such management in the Director of the Michigan department of Natural Resources.
