MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement regarding today’s session day:

“Today, Assembly Republicans once again turned their backs on our precious lakes and wetlands.

“We need to protect and preserve our clean lakes and fishing areas – and these bills will allow right-wing special interests to deprive future generations from our heritage. These Republican giveaways will allow polluters to destroy fish and wildlife habitats and could release toxins into lakes where we swim, fish and enjoy time with our families. These bills also put our property values and tourism economy at risk.

“The bills Republicans passed today are a trifecta of environmental degradation. Legislative Republicans have once again sold out our clean lakes, wetlands and sporting heritage to appeal to extreme right-wing special interests.”

  1. Jim says:

    I have communicated with “my” Republican Senator, Republican State Representative, and DNR in Madison. Bottom line it’s about how much money they can make off “harvesting” our natural resources. Thus destroying our lakes, streams, woods and wetlands. Is anyone In this current administration monitoring, or care about the over harvesting of our forests, over harvesting of our fish and game, and pollution of our waters! No!
    Out of control in Northern Wisconsin!
    Time for a BIG change in this disfunctional government!
