Earlier this month, Governor Tony Evers declared that 2019 is the year of clean drinking water in Wisconsin. Yesterday, he announced that he will propose legalizing medical marijuana in the upcoming budget. For today’s show, we hone in on these two emerging initiatives to get a clearer picture. First, we hear from Kerry Schumann, executive director of Wisconsin Conservation Voters, about clean water advocacy. Then, state representative Melissa Sargent offers updates on the move to legalize medical marijuana in the state of Wisconsin.
We had many helpful listener calls today with instructions for testing your household well water. One option for Dane County residents is to order a kit from Public Health Madison & Dane County. Full instructions available on their website.
