Sen. Cropsey Thinks Taxpayers Should Pay To Fix His Church's Septic System

Leave it to our wacko right wing state senator to come up with some new outrage. Now Sen. Alan Cropsey wants taxpayers to foot the bill for his church's outdated sewage disposal system. I am not making this up. Our state senator has added $50,000 to the state budget so that the Grove Bible Church in rural Clinton County can update the system it put in place 30 years ago to meet new state standards. Sen. Cropsey is a member of the church's board. He claims the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality is being unkind to his church, but DEQ folks note all they are doing is enforcing the law. Here's the full story.

Residents of Michigan's 33rd Senate district consisting of Clinton, Ionia, Montcalm and Isabella Counties have taken a lot of crap from this state senator, but we sure as hell don't want to pay for it.

Is Cropsey term-limited? Is he running for re-election? Who's running against him?

No opposition to Cropsey has surfaced yet. The 33rd Seante District is a gerrymandered nightmare for Democrats and only a very courageous Democratic soul would even attempt a run at an incumbent who took 3 out of four counties by 2-1 in his last election.
