The Muskegon Area Sustainability Coalition (www.muskegonasc.org), which holds its regular monthly meetings at MAREC, has slated its October meeting as a panel discussion of experts to examine and discuss the pros and cons of Proposal 3, one of the initiatives to amend the Michigan constitution.  

Also known as “25 by 25,”  the proposal, which would require Michigan electric utilities to derive at least 25 percent of their energy from clean renewable sources by 2025, will go before Michigan voters on Election Day, November 6.   

The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.  No RSVP required.
