DEQ Déjà Vu: Gov. Snyder Issues Executive Order Creating DEQ and DNR.

5 Jan 2011

Yesterday Governor Snyder issued his first executive order since taking office on Saturday dividing (as expected) the functions of the DNRE into two newly created departments (the DNR and the DEQ) effective as of March 13th (Governor Engler separated the departments in 1995, but Governor Granholm rejoined them in 2009 in a cost-saving move).  Under the executive order, Dan Wyant will head the DEQ, and Rodney Stokes will head the DNR.
