MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today on Republican plans to introduce mining legislation this session:
“Bipartisan bills that create jobs for Wisconsin workers are precisely what we must focus on this session. A mining bill, crafted with all the stakeholders involved, is important to do right this time around. We need to make sure the bill creates mining jobs and also protects our natural resources, as well as our tourism and agricultural economies that are so vital to Wisconsin.
“More importantly, we must take up bills that will create jobs quickly. A bipartisan mining bill was rejected last session by Republicans and it will be years before mining jobs are a reality so I hope in the spirit of bipartisanship, Republican leaders will also consider measures we have been putting forward to close the skills gap and put people back to work immediately.”
