 Alternative Energy District Day

Last week, I enjoyed an alternative energy district day! I got a chance to tour the Marquis Ethanol Plant with the Wisconsin Towns Association Juneau County Chapter. I then visited the Oakdale Electric Cooperative solar farm in Juneau County. Lastly, I was able to tour the We Energies Castle Rock Hydro-dam on the Wisconsin River. I really appreciated the opportunity to learn about alternate energy sources that are offered and created right here in our district!

The Assembly Committee on Health will be holding a public hearing this upcoming week on Wednesday, August 14 where we will hear testimony on two bills including Assembly Bill 258 which I have co-authored with Senator Testin. AB 258 is relating to the Marquette University School of Dentistry rural scholarship program. You can watch the committee proceedings on wiseye.org.
