Republicans introduce bill limiting fire foam use

Two Republican lawmakers from northeastern Wisconsin are introducing a bill that would limit the use of fire-fighting foam that contains pollutants.


A lobbyist for the Wisconsin Association of School Boards says a Republican plan to increase funding for K-12 schools by $500 million is a "mixed bag."


Just a couple of days ago, the Wisconsin Veterans Affairs received an interesting letter from Bakersfield, California. In it was a Purple Heart, a name, and very little information.



Wednesday, republicans in Wisconsin's legislature introduced a package of bills in response to the Department of Transportation's budget request for the 2019-2020 biennium. The "Road to Sustainability Package," authors say, will improve the department's efficiency and provide needed funding without raising taxes.
