At the end of each month, we check in with Great Lakes commentator and journalist Gary Wilson for updates on environmental stories from around the basin. This month, some of the biggest environmental stories had to do with energy and how we transport it across the Great Lakes region.

The biggest story here in Michigan was the state's settlement with energy giant Enbridge over the 2010 Kalamazoo River oil spill.

Current State talks about that story, and about new regulations regarding railcars in Michigan, with Gary Wilson.

This segment is supported by Michigan State University's Knight Center for Environmental Journalism. More news about the Great Lakes environment can be found at GreatLakesEcho.org and on Current State every Tuesday as part of our partnership.
