As you know, 23 million gallons of oil flow through the two pipelines in the Straits of Mackinac every day. A spill in that location would have a devastating impact on the Great Lakes and the economy of the surrounding states. On September 27, 2016, Enbridge identified several potential 'holidays' on the pipeline where there may be a loss of protective coating around the pipe. We urge you to review Enbridge's work plan in an expedited fashion so these vulnerabilities can be investigated as soon as possible.
We urge the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to swiftly assess the situation and to advise Congress on what specific steps are being taken, or will be taken, to deter such threats from being made, to identify and prosecute the perpetrators for violations of federal criminal laws, and to enable JCCs to enhance security measures such as physical barriers and guards, in the event that an individual seeks to act upon these threats.
