MADISON – This week, the legislature passed a bipartisan resolution recognizing the importance of children’s access to Wisconsin’s outdoor resources and activities. Co-sponsored by Rep. Chris Taylor (D-Madison) and Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt (R-Fond du Lac), the resolution encourages parents to take the time to explore Wisconsin’s outdoors with their children. Rep. Taylor issued the following statement about the resolution:
“Wisconsin has a rich and long standing commitment to its outdoor heritage. As technology has advanced, fewer children are taking advantage of the outdoor opportunities our great state has to offer.
