Shortly after Rep. Dan Benishek arrived in Washington, staffers raised a banner that proclaimed to visitors in his Capitol Hill suite: "If you are here to ask for more money, you're in the wrong office!"
Rep. Dan Benishek, R-Iron River, noted that the House Committee on Natural Resources recently approved a draft of legislation that would designate about 32,500 acres of the 111-square-mile park as wilderness area.
"Northern Michigan is very fortunate to be home to this extraordinary stretch of shoreline," Benishek said. "This bill strikes a common sense, balanced approach between conservation and recreation that nearly all Michiganders will support. I am hopeful that we can get this bill passed and delivered to the president's desk so that future generations will also be able to enjoy the natural wonder that is Sleeping Bear Dunes."
