Door/Kewaunee Legislative Days is a biennial trip to the state capital in Madison by Door/Kewaunee County residents, elected officials, business owners and other stakeholders, to bring a locally agreed-upon agenda of Door/Kewaunee County issues directly to state elected officials and government agency leaders.
The Door/Kewaunee Legislative Days steering committee declared the spring 2015 trip to Madison a very successful initiative. Issues of importance to Door and Kewaunee Counties were effectively and expertly delivered to state legislators, members of the Governor’s administration and various state agencies. The steering committee is very pleased with the immediate impact this year’s event has had on several key issues, especially funding for the Kewaunee Seawall project, restoration of the Harbor Assistance Program funding and the reinstatement of the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship program. The next state legislative session begins on September 15 and the Legislative Days Steering Committee will continue to promote and track the progress of our Legislative Days agenda items. More details about Legislative Days 2015 are available at www.dklegislativedays.com.
Past major successes of previous Legislative Day events include approvals and funding for projects such as the State Highway 42/57 4-lane expansion, Sturgeon Bay bridge improvements, WireTech relocation, tourism marketing, Shipbuilding Cluster Plan, phosphorous fertilizer control, beach water quality testing, invasive species abatement and registration of underground propane gas lines.
