Wisconsin farmers applaud the support for SB 302

Nov. 15, 2013 | 0 comments


The Wisconsin Potato & Vegetable Growers Association extends sincere appreciation to Sen. Neal Kedzie (R-Elkorn) and the members of the Senate Natural Resources Committee who voted to recommend Senate Bill 302 for passage. SB 302 will restore regulatory certainty to the high capacity well permitting program in Wisconsin, while preserving effective environmental review of applications for high capacity wells.

"This legislation is critical for Wisconsin potato and vegetable farmers who have made significant investments in Wisconsin farms and the local economy and who want to pass their farms on to future generations," said Duane Maatz, executive director of the Wisconsin Potato & Vegetable Growers Association.

"We extend sincere appreciation to Sen. Kedzie for his leadership on this issue. We believe that this bill will restore a much-needed framework to the high capacity well approval process and allow farmers to continue to grow in Wisconsin. We look forward to SB 302 moving through the legislative process this session."

Vegetable farming is central to Wisconsin's farm economy. Wisconsin ranks second in the nation in the production of processing vegetables and consistently ranks third in the U.S. in potato production.

Wisconsin potato and vegetable growers are not only stewards of the land whose efforts help sustain and build Wisconsin's economy while providing quality, nutritious, fresh produce for America, but they are also men and women who participate in and lead a variety of community outreach events that help struggling families in Wisconsin and around the world.
