well I think you will find it started before `91. the fact Gov. Engler gave the DNR director executive power is beyond stupid. the fact he closed all the rec areas to offroad use of any kind was another stupid move. but the reality is the treehuggers have this state lock stock & barrel. the majority of tax payers don't have a clue how this state is tweeked by the DNR. the fact theres almost nothing in a 3 hour ride of Detroit is just the first barrier. the people who have been leaving the state when they lost their jobs and homes is just the first step to the DNR having total control. if theres nobody to bitch about what they're doing they can close it all.
gee I wonder who is going to pay when we're all gone?
by the way the state past a law in `94 saying it would provide a south east michigan offroad area which they have yet to deliver on.
