Wisconsin Ranks First In Environmental Protection Funding Cuts From 2008 To 2018

Ken Notes: This is not good, BUT our effort were seen by some as harmful to business development -- and some were. We need to rebuild what we have undone but we need business, the utilities, and others at the table. Wisconsin should again return to a place of environmental prominence with leaders of business standing side by side with leaders from the environmental communities. I talk to both sides every day and I promise there are many ready and willing to get this done. Let`s build a Wisconsin for our grandchildren...

GOP bill would give farm groups more control over Wisconsin livestock siting standards

Ken Notes: You do not need to read between the lines to realize this is designed to allow more CAFO`s and less regulation. We need to create a set of farm standards that take into account the impact of large industrial farms and allow family farms to compete. This is also an economic issue as small farms are not represented by many of the farm groups who are now funded by larger farms. I will once again suggest that digestor systems are now available that will produce a marketable gas product and can be used to heat the effluent to remove the pathogens that are now entering our wells, streams, and waterways...

Kaul objects to regs that could leave lead in Wisconsin drinking water

Ken Notes: There is science and cost to consider here. Lead pipe is bad, but over the years the sediment deposits protect the water from lead contamination. When Flint changed it`s water source the deposits flaked off and the result was a disaster. We need to replace the pipe and some like Madison have, other can not afford to do this in one fell swoop, this the law creating a time line for replacement. We need to very closely monitor this and ensure we prioritize replacement where any lead is detected. Green Bay has some very good advise...

Wisconsin high court approves Kohler golf course annexation

Ken Notes: I still like this project because Kohler is very protective of our coast, has given much to the State and region, and is very cautious regarding the development of their projects. This 250 acres could easily develop into dozens of McMansions with little or no respect for the shorline or region. We always need to consider plan B when fighting against plan A. Maybe we could get a public access trail along the lake that would be win win...
