Comments
While we are pleased with the changes, we remain opposed to this bill even as amended because there are still presumptive approvals for waterway permits included. As amended, the bill still includes the provisions of AB 177, which we also oppose.

Comments
This bill substantially lowers current standards protecting Wisconsin lakes and streams. One way is through the presumptive approval process.
