(MADISON) – Rep. Gary Hebl (D-Sun Prairie) announced that he has been selected by the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators (NCEL) to serve as State Lead in Wisconsin for 2018.
“I am excited to have been selected as the Wisconsin State Lead by NCEL,” Hebl said. “Protecting and restoring the environment is one of the top priorities I have as a legislator. I hope that I can use my position as State Lead to refocus Wisconsin’s priorities on strengthening environmental protections so that future generations are able to enjoy clean air and clean water, as well as enjoy outdoor activities such as hunting, hiking, and biking.
As State Lead, Rep. Hebl will be the main point of contact for the national group’s activities in Wisconsin, helping to plan visits as well as helping to grow NCEL by identifying potential recruits and educating other conservationists about using NCEL as a resource.
“I will continue to fiercely fight to protect Wisconsin’s natural resources, and look forward to working closely with NCEL on these important issues,” Hebl finished.
