Growing up in Wisconsin, I have a deep appreciation for our lakes, rivers and forests. These treasures are an important part of what makes our state so special, and I believe that we have a responsibility to protect them for future generations. But while we focus on preserving our natural resources, we must also ensure that businesses in Northeast Wisconsin are able to succeed without harmful and burdensome regulations.
As we continue exploring economically sound solutions, we should be encouraging private sector problem-solving. I am proud to continue the work of my predecessor, Congressman Ribble, through the Save the Bay initiative and I believe this effort is an example of the bottom-up problem solving that is vital to addressing these issues in our communities.
