Anyone that has walked across this majestic span, driven from one peninsula to the next, or has even seen a Michigan license plate, can rest assured that the Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA) has done a fantastic job at maintaining and operating the Mighty Mac.

If you believe that the MBA should have a sole purpose of maintaining and operating the bridge, and reject the addition of utility tunnel oversight, add your name here.

I strongly urge all those in Lansing and elsewhere to protect the Mackinac Bridge and to end attempts to significantly expand the Mackinac Bridge Authority’s role by assigning it responsibilities that have absolutely no relationship to the fundamental mission it has successfully carried out for 68 years.

I highly oppose any agreement to extend the use of Line 5 in the straights. A tunnel will take too long to build thereby extending the risk of leaks from the existing line. It is not necessary and does not benefit Michigan enough to justify a potential environmental disaster.

Leave the Machinac Bridge alone!!

The purpose of the Bridge is to connect the two peninsulas of our state Not to be caretaker of a utility tunnel for a foreign company that puts our drinking water and livelihood at risk. Why would our representatives vote in favor for something that brings serious risk to our lakes?

Jon LaSalle

The independence of the Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA) has allowed the MBA to maintain its focus solely on its mission: to protect and preserve the Bridge for the people of Michigan. Forcing the MBA to take on responsibility for a "utility tunnel" detracts from its original purpose. Thank you.

The Mackinac Bridge Authority should continue doing what is best for MI!!! They should protect the bridge and not be made to work for Canada!!

Do you really need someone to explain what's wrong with this matter. Open your eyes and smell the coffee.

I veritously urge our State electorate to deniy any additional resposibilities that were attempted to add to the Mackinaw Bridge authority.

It is important for the residents of Michigan to protect the bridge from external forces. The People that have been responsible for maintaining the bridge have done an excellent job and it should not be compromised. I urge that this legislation not be passed.

I may never be fortunate enough to visit Mackinac Island or to cross the Mighty Mack myself; BUT -- I want it to be there for the many others who can, and do, and in future will, not the least of these being my kids! LEAVE OUR BRIDGE THE HECK ALONE!!!!!

When Gov. John Engler appointed me to chair the Mackinac Bridge Authority, he had one request of me: Look After The Bridge. I am alarmed at the proposed dissolution of the Authority’s sole focus on the bridge. A recently introduced bill has the potential to seriously compromise the MBA’s effectiveness in managing Michigan’s most significant asset.
