Madison, WI – Representative Rick Gundrum (R-Slinger) released the following statement following  Governor Evers signing Wisconsin Act 234, originally known as Assembly Bill 943. The bill addresses  environmental remediation at several buildings in Wisconsin, including a facility on Oak Street in West  Bend.

“Addressing local concerns is one of the most rewarding accomplishments of representing my  constituents in the Wisconsin State Assembly. With the removal of the hazardous waste from the facility  on Oak Street, West Bend can move forward to other steps and get this building back on the tax roll. 

“Ordinarily, I would prefer to see the responsible parties pay for the cleanup, but the judge on this case  said that was not possible well into the foreseeable future. I would like to thank State Representative  Edming, State Senator Petrowski, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for their work on  this bill.”
