AB 457: They Paved Paradise and Put Up a Parking Lot

February 15, 2018

MADISON – State Representative Lisa Subeck (D – Madison) released the following statement today regarding Assembly Bill 547, a Republican bill which creates a number of exemptions for wetlands permitting and mitigation requirements, removing protections for hundreds of thousands of acres of wetland in Wisconsin.

“Republicans paved paradise and put up a parking lot. The damage that will be done under this bill cannot be undone; after all, you can’t just unpave over our wetlands once they are gone.”
