Public Hearing on Oil Filter Recycling

Legislation that I have authored will have a public hearing today before the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources. This legislation, Assembly Bill 258, would require oil filters and oil absorbent materials to be recycled in Wisconsin. It is estimated that oil filters and oil absorbent materials release millions of gallons of oil and toxic substances each year into our landfills, creating a hazard to our groundwater.
