From Wisconsin TU:
Kim McCarthy (Chair of Wisconsin Trout Unlimited) was told today that a group of Senators are going to be trying to pass legislation in the next few weeks that would "roll back" environmental protection of streams and environment in Wisconsin. Businesses and companies (including mining companies) that want to build near a stream or a waterw...ay/watershed in Wisconsin would now be largely unrestricted.
Please voice your opinions on this matter by contacting Senator Dale Schultz of Richland Center, who would be representing this area in any of the bills: 800-978-8008, Sen.Schultz@legis.wisconsin.gov. Also anyone who is available next Wednesday October 19th to join Trout Unlimited to lobby at the State Capital is welcome. The Senators will be holding meetings to discuss the proposed changes from 12:30pm to 4:00pm on that day. You can email Kim at KMCCARTHY2@new.rr.com for more information about this.
