Eureka! WI Assembly Ready to Strike Job-Creating Pay Dirt with Passage of Mining for America Act

AFP-Wisconsin Activists Redouble Grassroots Efforts as Measure Advances to Senate

MADISON, WI – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin announced plans to redouble its grassroots activist efforts in support of SB 395, the Mining for America Act. The measure is expected to pass the Assembly this evening and advance to the Senate for consideration in the coming days.

Americans for Prosperity State Director Eric Bott Made the Following Statement:

“By passing this bill, the Wisconsin Assembly has struck job-creation pay dirt!  For far too long, Northern Wisconsin has been beleaguered by a loss of good-paying, family-supporting blue collar jobs. The Mining for America Act will be a boon for these local communities by allowing Northern Wisconsinites to once again responsibly develop their abundant natural resources and reap the rewards of their work. It is no exaggeration to say this may be the single most important step the legislature can take this session to halt the population decline in the North and begin to close the unemployment gap between urban and rural Wisconsin. AFP-WI activists will continue their aggressive grassroots outreach campaign in the coming days to encourage Senators to follow the Assembly’s lead and send this bill to Governor Walker’s desk swiftly.”
