Kedzie preps for mining move

State Senator Neal Kedzie, who chairs the Senate Select Committee on Mining, is moving that committee towards a Senate version of the mining bill (AB 426) passed by the Assembly last week.

In my role as Chair of the Committee, it is my intent to review Wisconsin’s current mining law – along with Michigan and Minnesota law – and to solicit ideas from all committee members for draft legislation which can be discussed and debated in the near future at public meetings. As I have stated previously, the Assembly bill is one option which may serve as the foundation for consideration by the Senate. I am hopeful the committee can move expeditiously in crafting public policy which both Houses can embrace.
