Pushback Underway Against Assembly Compact Killers

Several Wisconsin conservation organizations, civic groups and leaders are beginning to react to last week's cynical ploy by GOP Assembly leaders to water-down or kill the pending Great Lakes Compact - - an eight state water management agreement.

The River Alliance of Wisconsin responds, here.

The Alliance for the Great Lakes has posted its pro-Compact testimony delivered at a Kenosha hearing about the agreement - - a regional hearing moved out of the State Capitol to a Lake Michigan basin community, but was woefully under-covered by local and regional media.
An exception: a thorough account in the Racine Journal Times, here.

Eight Wisconsin environmental and conservation groups hailed the hearing as a chance to highlight why a strong Great Lakes Compact is a necessity. Their joint release about the hearing is here.
