Senate approves softer water development bill


MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Senate voted Tuesday to scale back a bill that would ease the regulatory path for developers looking to build on bodies of water, sending the revised measure back to the Assembly for approval.

The Republican bill would make sweeping changes to statutes and regulations governing construction in water bodies.

One of the key provisions removed through an amendment Tuesday would have created a general permit authorizing shoreline property owners to dredge 25 cubic yards of material from an inland lake and 100 cubic yards of material from outlying waters annually.
