MADISON, WI -- Representative Chanz Green (R-Grand View) had two of his bills pass the Assembly earlier today. Senate Bill 105, which would allow signs along snowmobile trails that advertise nearby businesses, and Assembly Bill 550, which would modify the technical education equipment grant program.
“When it comes to SB 105, snowmobiling is a big part of the 74th Assembly District and is enjoyed by residents and tourists every year during the winter,” said Rep. Green. “But the DNR has begun to dismantle these signs, citing them as an inconvenience. These signs matter when it comes to public safety and economic prosperity. It was important that we passed this bill to ensure the public safety of snowmobile riders within the state of Wisconsin and to ensure the safety of tourists that come to Wisconsin while maintaining that economic impact.”
After passing the Senate earlier this year, Senate Bill 105 now heads to the governor’s desk.
“When it comes to AB 550, manufacturing continues to be a major economic driver of Wisconsin’s economy. In our state, manufacturing supports nearly 500,000 jobs across 92,000 companies and generates an annual economic output of over $68 billion,” said Rep. Green. “It was time to modify this grant program and adjust it to meet what Wisconsin needs today. It is necessary that we keep working to ensure that our students are exposed to this crucial industry in our state.”
Assembly Bill 550 now heads to the State Senate for consideration.
Rep. Green also voted in favor of Assembly Bill 553, which would establish freedom of expression and academic freedom standards on University of Wisconsin campuses and technical colleges across the state.
