Clean Wisconsin applauds the Wisconsin State Senate after unanimously passing Senate Bill (SB) 91, which sets up a nutrient pollution trading clearinghouse.

“Nutrient pollution, especially from phosphorus and nitrates, continues to choke our waterways and contaminate drinking water,” said Amber Meyer Smith, Clean Wisconsin Vice-President of Government Relations. “This bill is another tool to use in the ongoing effort to help communities comply with water quality standards by creating innovative partnerships that protect our water from nutrient pollution. We commend the Senate for unanimously passing this bill.”

Clean Wisconsin appreciates the authors’ efforts to work with concerned stakeholders to produce a bill that has garnered such bipartisan support, and urges quick Assembly action.
