Ensuring that children and families are safe from lead-poisoned water should be a bipartisan priority, no matter where the lead pipes happen to be. It is outrageous to learn that Assembly Speaker Vos and other Republican leaders are not supportive of tackling this public health crisis.
We must urge everyone to contact Speaker Vos and tell him providing clean, safe drinking water is a priority no matter where the lead service lines are. Speaker Vos' contact info: email@example.com or by phone at 608-266-9171
The hope is given some time to reflect on his statements Republican Speaker Vos thinks better of writing off the health and future of children in Wisconsin’s largest city. If he cares about the future of our state, the Assembly Speaker should realize that for every $1 we spend on lead abatement we see a 133% return on investment with higher lifetime earnings and improved health outcomes. This lifts all of Wisconsin.
