tony-evers-2019-sos-addressGroup applauds Governor's bold statement in State of the State Address.

MADISON – In his first major policy speech – Tuesday’s State of the State Address – Gov. Tony Evers declared 2019 the “Year of Clean Drinking Water.”

Executive Director Kerry Schumann had this to say on Gov. Evers’ speech:

clean-drinking-water“There’s nothing more fundamental to our state’s health than safe, clean drinking water. It is unconscionable that thousands of people in Wisconsin can't drink the water from their taps. That’s why safe drinking water has been Wisconsin Conservation Voters’ top priority for the past four years. As more and more families face growing threats to their drinking water like like lead, manure, and nitrate contamination, Gov. Evers made a bold statement that it’s time to tackle this problem.

We know that elected officials are hearing over and over again from voters about this, and we are hopeful that decision makers from both sides of the aisle will work together to implement real solutions. Conservation voters across the state join me in saying ‘Thank you, Gov. Evers.’”
