Madison, WI – Today, Senate Republicans voted to override Governor Evers’ veto on SB 312, legislation which would limit the ability to test, remediate, and hold polluters accountable for PFAS, while forcing impacted communities to compete with corporations to receive funding from the PFAS trust fund. State Senator Brad Pfaff (D-Onalaska) released the following statement:

“The people of French Island have been clear. Innocent landowners, like the residents of French Island, should not have to compete with big corporations to receive funding to clean up PFAS and get clean drinking water. My constituents want relief from PFAS without loopholes attached. It is time for Republicans to release the $125 million and stop playing political games so that communities like the Town of Campbell can address these toxic chemicals.”

Attached is a letter from Town of Campbell Supervisor Lee Donahue opposing SB 312.

Senator Brad Pfaff represents the 32nd Senate District, which includes La Crosse, Vernon, Crawford, and southern Monroe County.
