      Cowles/Nygren Applaud Action by the NRB on PFAS Firefighting Foam "I’m pleased to see a unanimous support by the NRB to begin the rulemaking process. This effort was a long-time in the making, and despite the initial reluctance by Governor Evers’ DNR appointees, we found common ground in this positive step and moved the process forward."

      Lawless Actions in Madison Despicable “If the Madison PD is handcuffed from doing their job by local politics, the Governor must take control and call in the National Guard to protect the right to of those wishing to peaceably assemble while controlling the lawlessness that has posed threats to public safety and property."

      Thompson an Ideal Choice for the UW-System “Filling Ray Cross’s shoes was always going to be a tall order. As the Regents continue their search for a long-term President, the interim pick of Thompson is a praiseworthy choice that will continue building on the value that our cherished higher education institutions bring to Wisconsin.”
