Independent DNR Secretary Hearing on August 13th

On Thursday, August 13th, the Senate Natural Resources Committee will hold a hearing about SB 133- the bill to Restore the Independent DNR Secretary.

In 1995, the Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources became a political appointee of the Governor. Concerns have surfaced. Should the WDNR Secretary be a political appointment or should they have experience in the field of natural resources and have worked their way to this position?

You can express your concerns on Thursday, August 13th, at 9:00 am at the State Capitol, Room 411 South, Madison, WI on this important issue.
