As the Wisconsin State Legislature continues to move forward with its legislative session, and the happenings in the State Capitol are fast and furious this time of year, I wanted to take this opportunity to discuss an issue that will affect all of us in central Wisconsin.

The Legislature has made a commitment to Wisconsin’s small businesses and to agricultural producers with the Clean Energy Jobs Act. The Clean Energy Jobs Act, State Senate Bill 450 and State Assembly Bill 649, contain various recommendations of the Governor’s Global Warming Task Force to address climate change and grow the state’s green economy through several key measures.
