"LANSING, MI - Michigan officials have selected a pair of contractors to conduct two high profile studies of the Enbridge Line 5 oil pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac. Dynamic Risk Assessment Systems of Calgary, Canada and the American division of Norway-based Det Norske Veritas won bids for the independent studies, which are expected to be finished next summer."

"LANSING, MI — Michigan officials received safety inspection data sought during a yearlong inquiry on the controversial Mackinac straits Line 5 pipeline, but the raw form information was "too complex" for the state's task force to understand, say executives with the Canadian energy giant Enbridge Inc."

"Lansing - Michigan officials said Tuesday the days of letting pipelines operate under the Straits of Mackinac are numbered, but there is no immediate reason to shut them down. Attorney General Bill Schuette admitted during a Tuesday press conference that the state today would not allow the two pipelines that Enbridge Energy has operated for nearly 60 years to be built."
