Wisconsin’s Governor, Democrats propose new food and ag bills

Wisconsin’s Governor and legislative Democrats have introduced a new series of food and agriculture bills.

During a Tuesday stop at World Dairy Expo, Governor Tony Evers says one of the bills calls for creating a meat talent development program, “to provide more than 2.6 million dollars in grants to target meat industry workforce development and spur that growth which is critically important.”

If passed, Evers says the meat talent development program would use 2.6 million dollars to help train more meat cutters.
