The following bills were recently signed into law by Gov. Scott Walker:
Senate Bill 180 (Act 38) – modifies Wisconsin statute so the Great Lakes Council diversion area becomes the water supply service area for the public water supply system in the City of Waukesha. This change provides consistency by specifying the diversion area established by the Great Lakes Council is the water supply area for that public water supply system, ensuring a water supply service area is consistent with an applicable diversion area and diversion approval issued by the Great Lakes Council. Authored by Sen. Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield), Rep. Scott Allen (R-Waukesha), and Rep. Adam Neylon (R-Pewaukee).
Senate Bill 100 (Act 39) – specifies that scope statements expire 30 months after being published in the Administrative Registrar. Under current law, scope statements do not expire. Authored by Sen. Steven Nass (R-Whitewater) and Rep. Adam Neylon (R-Pewaukee).
