WISCONSIN SENATE WILL LIKELY REVISIT BILL TO EASE REGULATIONS ON HIGH-CAPACITY WELLS

Wisconsin Senate Republicans will likely revisit a proposal to loosen regulations on high-capacity wells early in the upcoming legislative session, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, said Tuesday. The bill died last session after the Senate and Assembly passed different versions of it. Fitzgerald said he expects the Legislature to pass the version approved by the Senate, he told reporters after the Legislature’s inauguration ceremonies.┬áThe proposal from last session would have allowed high-capacity wells to be transferred, repaired or reconstructed without a new permit, under the conditions of its original permit. Current law requires prior approval from the state Department of Natural Resources to transfer or make changes to a high-capacity well. http://host.madison.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/election-matters/wisconsin-senate-will-likely-revisit-bill-to-ease-regulations-on/article_eeff5c11-7e8b-5369-b6e1-dbdeb2849c0d.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=user-share
