business-people“The economy is expanding at such a brisk pace that Americans turned to [external] sources to meet demand,” said Joe Brusuelas, chief economist at audit and tax firm RSM.

WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. economy retracted slightly in the first quarter as a rush of imported goods and fading fiscal stimulus led to a decline in gross domestic product (GDP), according to data released Thursday by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA).

U.S. GDP shrank at an annualized rate of 1.4 percent during the first three months of 2022, according to the BEA’s first estimate of first-quarter economic growth. Economists expected U.S. GDP to have fallen by an annualized rate of 1 percent.

Agard to Testify Against Medical Marijuana Bill at Public Hearing PDF Print E-mail

medical-marijuanaMadison, WI – Today, the Senate Committee on Insurance, Licensing and Forestry will hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 1034 relating to medical marijuana. State Senator Melissa Agard (D-Madison) will testify against the bill and released the following statement:

“The most dangerous thing about cannabis in Wisconsin is that it is illegal. Senate Bill 1034 falls drastically short of the cannabis reform our state desperately needs and what the majority of Wisconsinites support: full cannabis legalization.

melissa-sargent“Cannabis legalization is an issue I have been passionate about and continued working on for over nine years, since my first term in the Wisconsin State Legislature. Over the years, both in the building and across the state of Wisconsin, I have witnessed cannabis legalization become an increasingly popular issue.

“While I am encouraged that Senate Bill 1034 received a public hearing, we as legislators had 15 months of this session in which we could have worked on cannabis legalization in a bipartisan manner. Instead, this bill does not do nearly far enough for cannabis reform or adequately address the harms of cannabis prohibition in Wisconsin.

“Wisconsinites are ready for cannabis reform. As the latest Marquette Law School poll demonstrates, 61% of Wisconsin residents support cannabis legalization—yet Wisconsin is extremely far behind and increasingly becoming an island of prohibition as our neighbors in Michigan and Illinois have fully legalized, and Minnesota has legalized medicinal use.

“We cannot settle for half-baked, insufficient legislation that is nothing more than a political ploy to give folks false hope on the prospects of cannabis legalization here in Wisconsin. We must put our efforts behind full cannabis legalization.”

No Mow May in Green Bay and De Pere PDF Print E-mail

may-nomow-signGREEN BAY - The City of De Pere and City of Green Bay, are jointly offering their residents the opportunity to participate voluntarily in No Mow May 2022.

No Mow May is a conservation initiative that encourages people to stop mowing or mow less often for the month of May to create habitat and provide early season resources for bees and other pollinators.  This is particularly important in urban areas where floral resources are often limited. First popularized by Plantlife, an organization based in the United Kingdom, No Mow May is gaining traction across North America.

“The City of De Pere is continually looking for ways to promote sustainability and environmental responsibility. With this optional No Mow May initiative, we continue this mission and join a growing number of communities who are embracing new ways to support and help our pollinators,” De Pere Mayor James Boyd.

“The City of Green Bay is thrilled to participate in ‘No Mow May’ this year,” said Mayor Eric Genrich. “This initiative is a natural outgrowth of our efforts as a city to support pollinators by reevaluating our lawn care practices and increasing our emphasis on native plantings on city-owned property, and it’s a great way to engage with our citizenry and educate the public about the importance of this work.”

No Mow May is an optional and voluntary program for City residents. Participants are asked to register and display their City-issued "No Mow May" yard sign in their front yard for the duration of the program. Participants should reach out to their respective community for specific details regarding registration, terms of participation, and obtaining yard signs.
