GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – State Republican lawmakers are showing support for Gov. Tony Evers’s plan to move the Green Bay coal piles.
State senators Eric Wimberger and Robert Cowles, along with Assembly representatives David Steffen and John Macco, have begun circulating a bill that mirrors the governor’s request to use $5 million from the American Rescue Plan to move the coal piles from the downtown riverfront to a new location.
Green Bay could then develop that downtown area into taxable property.
Wisconsin is receiving $2.7 billion from the American Rescue Plan.
