After a day of meeting state legislators and agencies, delegates from Door/Kewaunee Legislative Days believe they are making headway with their agenda items. The delegates are focusing on five different items involving improving water quality, increasing funding for rural broadband and harbor assistance programs, and opposing the repeal of the statewide standard for a school starting date. One item Kewaunee County Board Supervisor Lee Luft said was addressed was the regulation of large farms in the area and if what is already being done is enough.
First-time delegate and Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Caleb Frostman is hopeful for the positive impact the over 120 attendees are having in their meetings.
Delegates are scheduled to have meetings in the morning with more state agencies and legislators before departing Thursday afternoon.
