Wisconsin bill changing farmer-led watershed program reaches Governor’s desk
Wisconsin legislation that would make changes to the farmer-led watershed program now await the Governor’s signature.
Senate Bill 59 and Assembly Bill 65 would allow farmers from adjacent watersheds to join a farmer-led watershed group. The bill also would allow producer-led groups that are not legal entities to receive state grants for projects through a member of the group.
The legislation had strong bipartisan support at the Capitol.
