Statement: Final Report of Task Force on Water Quality
January 8, 2020
Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statements after the Speaker’s Task Force on Water Quality submitted its final report to his office.
“I want to thank the members of the task force for taking part in this unprecedented, bipartisan effort for clean water in Wisconsin. This package of bills begins to address the problems today and provides the foundation for future innovations.
“It’s clear we can’t just throw money at these issues, thinking they’ll immediately go away. Wisconsin needs a long-term strategy to protect, preserve and promote clean water. These bills are a first step toward that goal.
“Like the task force, our efforts to improve water quality will only be successful through collaboration and cooperation without politics getting in the way.”
