MICHIGAN CITY – Just days after the Indiana Senate approved a bill to spell out the rights of public recreational use of the Lake Michigan shore, environmental groups and municipalities are warning of another bill that could undermine those efforts and take away local control of the shoreline.

"Michigan CIty Mayor Ron Meer has joined with the Long Beach Community Alliance and Save the Dunes to warn that Indiana Senate Bill 581 poses a grave danger for the Indiana public’s rights on the shoreline, as well as the management of upland dunes, affecting more than just Lake Michigan’s coastal communities," a statement from the two non-profits said.
