Dianda introduces legislation to aid U.P. communities in crisis

April 18, 2014
The Daily Mining Gazette

LANSING - State Representative Scott Dianda, D-Calumet, introduced House Bill 5458 today to provide much-needed financial assistance to Upper Peninsula communities struggling with the frozen water lines crisis. Due to the extreme cold weather this winter and into the spring, thousands of U.P. residents are on "let run" orders to keep pipes from freezing and bursting, and local municipalities are being forced to cover numerous unforeseen expenses stemming from the deep frost. Dianda's bill would designate $10 million in grants to communities in counties that have issued local states of emergency.
