Wisconsin state Sen. Brad Pfaff in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on Feb. 26, 2024.

Wisconsin state Sen. Brad Pfaff in the WIZM studio Monday for La Crosse Talk PM discussing his new district, how the Legislature gives itself the next 10 months off and what still needs to be done, including childcare, PFAS and potential tax relief.

We start the show with the ridiculous 60-degree weather but also what this lack of winter means for farmers. 

Then we get into the Wisconsin Legislature having the next 10 months off and what Pfaff sees as a priority list of things that need to get done during that time. But that would mean calling the Legislature back into session, and if Pfaff sees that happening.

The second half of the show, we got into one of the big things the state still needs to work on and that’s PFAS “forever chemicals.” Pfaff talks about the Town of Campbell being on bottled water the last four years due to that and what the state could do to fight PFAS.

After that (27:15), we hit on a couple other priorities the Legislature could deal with over the next 10 months, instead of campaigning, which included childcare funding and tax relief. 

Pfaff talks (30:15) about a property tax relief bill he’s proposed for working class that’s sort of a combination of income and property value.
