Bill Description

Wisconsinites deserve to breathe clean air. Unsafe levels of pollution can cause premature death for those with existing respiratory and pulmonary health conditions. Long-term exposure to unsafe levels of pollution can permanently damage the lungs and hearts of children. When unsafe levels of pollution are recorded, Wisconsin is required to develop plans to reduce all sources of air pollution in the area. SB 466 & AB 588 would prohibit the DNR from including the air monitoring site located at Kohler-Andrae State Park in the air quality data submitted to EPA because it shows unhealthy level of pollution in Sheboygan County. By hiding the evidence of unhealthy air pollution, this bill would attempt to artificially show compliance with federal Clean Air Act Standards and thus allow for more pollution in the area.
