Newsmakers: Climate Change (Part One)
Three legislators who will manage a 174-page bill implementing environmental changes recommended by a governor’s task force talked about the package in a Newsmakers: Climate Change (Part 1) show. Democratic Sen. Mark Miller, and Democratic Reps. Spencer Black and Jim Soletski, said the proposal would make Wisconsin a national leader and predicted it will pass the Legislature this spring. They were joined by Kevin Crawford of Orion Energy Systems, representing Wisconsin businesses who support the bill, and Roy Thilly, cochairman of the task force that spent 14 months drafting the recommendations. Be sure to watch for Newsmakers: Climate Change (Part 2), which will feature opponents of the bill.
