Gov. Evers’ proposal addresses public safety, rural workforce issues
Last week, Gov. Tony Evers included a provision in his proposed budget that would create a driver’s license for non-citizens. The Dairy Business Association has been working for several years to convince legislators to allow people, regardless of immigration status, to drive legally in Wisconsin if they are properly trained and insured.
DBA President Tom Crave, who is a farmer, issued the following statement in response to the governor’s proposal:
The Dairy Business Association is a nonprofit organization comprised of Wisconsin dairy farmers, milk processors, vendors and business partners who work to ensure that Wisconsin dairy farmers of all sizes have the support they need to thrive in the state’s economy, communities and food supply chain. The integrated approach is a unique model that fosters collaboration and innovation for the collective good. The association’s core work is advocating for sensible state laws and regulations that affect the dairy community. For more information, visit www.widba.com.
