The Wisconsin Legislature will hold one public hearing on a bill to loosen state rules for high capacity water wells. The Assembly Agriculture Committee and the Senate’s regulatory reform panel will have a joint hearing next Wednesday at the State Capitol from nine a-m until six p-m at the latest. Senate G-O-P Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald introduced a bill in January to end D-N-R oversight for ownership transfers and repairs of large private wells — with groundwater studies in the Central Sands part of Wisconsin. A similar bill failed to pass in the last session after disagreements on whether those who lose nuisance suits should pay the winners’ legal fees. This time, the Assembly G-O-P introduced the same language as the Senate package.
