Madison – “I am outraged by the egregious attack today on Wisconsin’s public waters.

“Senate Bill 76 was passed by Senate Republicans, privatizing Wisconsin water for the benefit of high capacity well owners. This bill allows high capacity well permits to be issued permanently. FOREVER.

“This is not a partisan issue, this is a fairness issue. Water belongs to everyone, not just the chosen few. I expected better out of my Republican colleagues today and I am sorely disappointed in their actions.”
