I am happy to report that yesterday a Senate Committee Hearing was held on AB314. As a result of that hearing, Senator Plale, Chairman of the Utilities, Commerce, and Rail Committee, has stated publicly that AB314 will be voted out of the committee and moved to the Senate floor for a vote. As we work towards The Senate vote, we ask that all members contact their State Senator and express to them that this legislation is essential to the health and safety of railroaders in regards to the spraying of pesticide/herbicides on railroad property. If you do not know who your legislator is. This information is available at http://www.legis.wisconsin.gov/w3asp/waml/waml.aspx  this only takes a few minutes of your time but is a very good way for all members to be involved in the legislative process. I will keep you all updated as this legislation move through the Senate.

Fraternally,

 Paul Aird
