Jill Billings Water Listening Session

Jill Billings will be having a water listening session next Wednesday. Her release on the event is below, consider going out to voice your opinion on water in Wisconsin, and what we need to keep it safe.

I will be holding a listening session to address La Crosse area constituents' concerns regarding water and environmental issues.

This event -- which is co-hosted by UW-L's Students for Sustainability group -- will provide a great opportunity for community members to speak about ways to ensure access to healthy drinking water in our community and across the state. Topics likely to be discussed include the spreading of liquid manure by concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), increased groundwater pollution and the presence of lead in drinking water. I will be there to listen to your environmental priorities so I can best represent La Crosse in the Capitol. 

I will be joined by Dr. Kelvin Rodolfo, professor emeritus from the University of Chicago, who studies karst geology in the driftless region and will give a short presentation. Rep. Steve Doyle from Onalaska will also be joining us to listen and answer questions.

The event will be held Wednesday, April 19 from 4-6 p.m. in Room 3110 of UW-L's new Student Union.
The session is free and open to the public, and is an excellent opportunity to make your voices heard.
